Open Auto

I have 10 credit cards open, is it better to have open credit card accounts with no balance or to close them?

My credit score is a 690 and I want it higher. If I close some of my credit card accounts will it go up or does it show negatively when you close accounts?

I happen to disagree with many of the above comments. Scores of 620-650 are considered average, scores above 650 are considered high scores.

The biggest contributors to your score are: Paying on time, Account balances compared to max credit available, Credit length, and type of credit. The rough percentages are below:

Payment History 35% of your score
Outstanding Balances 30% of your score
Lenght of Credit History 15% of your score
Type of credit 10% of your score
Inquiries 10% of your score

Usually the number of open accounts does not have an major impact on your credit. I have actually seen the opposite occur that when you start closing accounts your credit actually drops due to various things such as now you account balances start to get to close to your max available credit, etc.

Pay your bills ALWAYS on time. Pay credit cards down or close to zero every month.

Make sure your balances relative to your max credit is low, somewhere in the 10-20%. IE if you have a $5,000 limit do not put more then $1000 on the card in a month, and be sure you have funds to pay that down to almost zero when the bill comes.

Lenght of credit... If you find it necessary to close any accounts DO NOT CLOSE the ones you have had forever. Keep those ones open. Close recently opened credit IF YOU MUST. The longer you have an account in good standing open the better. A good length to have a card open is 15 years. You will be doing good if once you hit that mark.

Type of credit... make sure you have a variety of cards, such as gas cards, department store cards, bank issued visa and mastercards, etc.

If you have a lot of recent inquiries it can lower you credit score as it makes you look desperate for credit. Try to make sure to not open new accounts within a year or so of eachother.

I have suggestions to help you increase your credit score... Do you own a home? If not a mortgage will help to increase your credit score... Open auto loan...? A paid of or open auto loan will increase your credit score... Pretty much and LONG TERM and Large amount loans will have a great impact on your credit score.... If you can show that you have made a 2K house payment for the past 10 years.... You have shown your ability to pay, which will be reflected by your credit score.

Do a voluntary inquiry into your credit. This does not have a negative effect on your score... You can get it free from www.annualcreditreport.com or you can pay www.myfico.com or other similar site to get your credit score and view your credit report. Be sure that all the information on your credit report is valid and dispute anything you see as odd.

Get your credit score from all 3 credit bureaus... Equifax, Transunion, and Experian. Each one scores you differently... You can have a large range of credit scores between the 3... Say for example 720 with transunion, 690 with Equifax, and 708 with Experian. So it is worth it to see the overall picture. Please note that when you request your credit report from the bureaus you often do not get your FICO score. You may have to use www.myfico.com to get those.

My hand hurts from typing :) so if you need more help or advise please let me know or email me. I would be glad to help you in anyway that I can.

Hope I was of some help.
