Credit Cards 101 Part 2: Debt Pay Down Strategies

Credit cards have the ability to make or break your credit scores. In Part 1 of our Credit Cards 101 series we have already covered just how important it is that you keep your credit card balances paid off monthly. Credit card debt has the ability to harm your credit scores even if you make all of your monthly payments on time.

Yet credit cards are not nefarious either. It is ultimately up to you whether your credit card accounts will help or hurt your credit and finances. In fact, by never revolving a balance from month to month you can turn your credit cards into powerful, credit building tools.
