Paying a credit card in full builds credit. The more positive info and the fewer negative records your credit report contains, the better your credit score will be. That’s why it’s so important to understand what goes into your credit score.
Hi! I want to echo WalletHub's words. You build and improve your credit whenever you pay ANTYHING and everything on time. On-time payments of any bills are the cornerstone of good credit. It's also so important to get in the habit of paying what you owe when you owe it. I understand that it's often hard or impossible to find the money when earnings are low and hardships continue to hit, but when times are a bit easier, try to avoid spending on "wants" so that there is enough money to pay bills for "needs." Best of luck to you!
