Borrow Only What You Can Pay Back
A Lowes credit card is probably just part of your credit picture. Look at it the same way you would a mortgage, rent, other credit cards, and car loans. Always know your fixed monthly spending to make sure that you’re staying within your budget.
It is very important to pay your bills on time every month. Never skip payments because you will pay late fees and penalties. Show lenders you are responsible and trustworthy. Your credit score depends on how timely you are with payments.
If you don’t have the money to pay cash now, why would you think you will have money when the credit card bill comes in the mail?
- Always make payments on time
- Pay more than the minimum amount due
- Keep your balance below 25 percent of your credit limit.
- If you make a large purchase of $500 or more -Stop! Don’t charge anything until that purchase is paid off. It will be difficult to do, but continued charges will only add to your future payments.

Don’t Use Your credit Cards Like Cash.
They will have an impact on your financial well being and savings goals. Consider credit cards in your big debt picture along with other financial priorities so you can use credit to your advantage. Those banks and card issuers who kept giving you more and more credit a few years ago are making it harder to get credit and raising interest rates.
When you have a good credit score and a history of on-time payments, your ability to borrow will be rewarded. Lower interest rates and easier approvals for that dream home you have your eye on.
Regular payments and smart use of credit will help you build a good credit history and strengthen any application in the future.
