Why a good credit score is a good thing

On the 300-850 scale used by FICO®, a good credit score is about 670. Ok, so what does this mean in terms of the real world? Having a good credit score can make it easier to get a lower interest rate on different types of loans. Essentially, having good credit can make life more affordable. 

So, if you have plans to upgrade your car, apartment, or business, it starts with a good credit score. And your best move is to use Chime’s Credit Builder card.
