Credit scores are used by financial companies to help them determine if a consumer has any potential risk in extending them credit. Most often, credit scores are used by financial institutions, credit card companies, and car dealerships to determine whether or not they should provide you with credit, and what the terms, interest rate, and down payment of the credit will be.
Credit score calculations are placed into five categories between the ranges of 300-850:
Poor: 579 or below
Very Good: 740-799
Excellent: 800 or above
Generally, credit scores above 670 are considered good, and a credit score above 800 is considered to be an excellent credit score. Most consumers fall somewhere between 600 to 750.
As mentioned, the benefit of having higher credit scores represent more financial responsibility, thus providing creditors and lenders with more confidence that you will be able to repay any future debts as agreed upon. Get a credit report today and see where your credit score stands.
Your credit report contains several pieces of crucial information, such as your credit history, the different types of credit you have previously used, and for how long, any outstanding debts you may have, and how frequently you made payments on the agreed-upon due dates every month.
The data within your credit report is used by various lenders and creditors to determine your financial responsibility, and whether or not you are a risk in terms of extending credit.
Credit reports contain data from four main categories of personal and financial information.
Personally Identifiable Information (PII): Refers to personal information that can be used to identify you, such as your full name, current and previous address, date of birth, and social security number.
Credit Accounts: Each credit account you have opened with various creditors and lenders.
Credit Inquiries: Inquiries are a record of who has accessed you credit report and on what date. Hard inquiries are made each time you apply for a new line of credit, while soft inquiries are made each time you view your credit report.
Public Record and Collections: Refers to personal information such as bankruptcies, debt collections, and any pending legal issues.
However, credit scores are not shown on your credit report because they represent a different insight into your credit. Credit reports indicate your credit activity, while credit scores reflect a calculation of your credit activity.

The credit reporting agencies are responsible for maintaining your credit report and providing the data to various creditors and lenders who request it. There are three major credit reporting agencies.
However, information that is provided to each of the three credit bureaus may be different due to the individual creditors furnishing your data. For example, one credit bureau may have more or fewer inquiries than the other two, which could potentially produce different looking credit reports.
Because of this, it's recommended that you request your credit report with each of the three major bureaus so that you have a comprehensive look into your financial standing, and quickly identify any difference that could potentially be affecting it.
Monitoring your credit is tough to do on your own. Your SmartCredit® membership provides you with the absolute best platform for your money, credit, and identity all in one.
