    Have you ever checked your credit score? What's a good credit score vs bad credit score? Also how do I build my credit score if it's bad and how long does it take to build?

    I dunno anything

    701, which is okay but not great

    Get a credit card with a small limit, only use it to pay for stuff you have the money for, pay most of it off every month.

    900 is the top. And below 500 is terrible

    Get into debt and pay it off. Repeat.

    I find it bizarre that you have to get into debt to be classified as reliable

    I only have a credit card in case of emergencies. I don't use it to buy things and pay later.

    Is there a way to check my credit score for free? Equifax is asking me for money
