More than half of all Americans don’t know their credit score. Here’s why that’s a problem: Your credit score is used by a host of people — from your bank to your landlord — to judge whether you should be allowed something you want, like, say, a credit card. So the worse your credit score is, the less likely you are to get these things.

Things like:

-A good auto loan
-A mortgage!
-A higher credit limit
-A lower credit card rate
-Insurance
-Utilities!
-A job — that’s right, employers see your credit score.
-A girlfriend. Yep, a study actually found women care more about a good credit score than physical attraction in a partner.

So, yeah. Your credit score is important. Today, we’re going to show you five tips to raise your score by 100 points — fast. Check it out.
