How to get your credit score above 800 and keep it there


How credit scores can both help and hurt Americans

Generally speaking, the higher your credit score, the better off you are when it comes to getting a loan.

FICO scores, the most popular scoring model, range from 300 to 850. A “good” score generally is above 670, a “very good” score is over 740 and anything above 800 is considered “exceptional.”

Once you reach that 800 threshold, you’re highly likely to be approved for a loan and can qualify for the lowest interest rate, according to Matt Schulz, LendingTree’s chief credit analyst.
