Movin' on up - How can I quickly raise my credit score?
March 13, 2013 2:22 PM Subscribe
I am currently unemployed, but am receiving unemployment and some temp jobs here and there and have a very good balance of budgeting vs. spending. I have a checking and saving account, 2 credit cards, plus 2 retail credit cards that I pay off the balance of each month.
1. What can I do to quickly increase my 654, 666, 670 scores to the 700's?
2. Does being unemployed affect my credit score?
3. Will acquiring a car loan now affect my credit score?
