How to build credit with a Credit One credit card
To build credit with your Credit One credit card:
- Use your card regularly: Using your Credit One card responsibly each month gives Credit One positive marks to report to the credit bureaus. If you have a low credit limit or worry about being able to pay your credit card bill, charge a small recurring purchase to the card (like your Netflix or Amazon subscription).
- Use less than 30% of your credit limit: An important factor in determining your credit score is your credit utilization rate, which is how much of your total credit you’re using. You want this number low, so try to only use less than 30% of your credit limit, or less than 10% for an even better rate.
- Pay your bill on time: The most important part of building credit and raising your credit score is making on-time payments to your Credit One account. When you pay your credit card bill also matters if you’re trying to raise your score. Pay your credit card bill in full by the due date, and pay down most of it by the statement closing date (since that’s when Credit One reports your account standing) to maximize positive reporting.
- Keep your account open: The length of your credit history also contributes to your credit score, so keep your Credit One credit card account open to increase your average credit age.
