Looking for ways to keep more cash in your pocket? Boosting your credit score could be a good place to start. In fact, a study shows raising your credit score from the range considered “fair” to the range considered “very good” could save an average of $316 per month¹

But how could you potentially make that jump? 

Credit report errors could be the culprit

Some people have errors on their credit report that bring down their credit score — like late payments that weren’t late, for example. Unfortunately, these errors can have a negative impact on your credit score, which, depending on the severity, might lead to unfavorable results like:

  • Losing out on an apartment or job
  • Being denied for credit cards, loans, and more
  • Paying higher fees and interest rates

Now it might be tempting to turn to costly credit repair companies with promises of a big credit score increase (for a big fee, of course). But there are free tools out there — like Upturn Credit — that you can turn to instead. (And yes, Upturn is 100% free, 100% of the time.)
