building your credit future: A guide to responsible credit card use
More than 70% of Americans are dealing with credit card debt. From impulse buying to large balances, poor financial behaviors are perpetuating our credit card debt cycle. Extreme, right?
Ultimately, these numbers tell us one thing: Most credit card users are doing something wrong.
At Thrivent Federal Credit Union, we work to help Christians bring balance to their financial journey. And that includes the way they build credit. So, we put our heads together and compiled a guide full of resources aimed to help credit card users – old and new – learn how to:
- Wade through credit card jargon.
- Decode credit scores.
- Boost credit history.
- Implement credit card best practices.
- Reach financial goals, and more.
