    How Credit Cards Work

    Shopping with a credit card is a snap, but shopping for the card that’s right for you is another matter. Ask yourself these questions: Do you pay your credit card bills in full and on time each month? If not, do you spread out repayment over a fairly long period of time? Do you shop primarily at one store, or at many locations? The answers can help you choose a card that will help you use credit at the lowest cost.

    How Your FICO Credit Score is Calculated

    Your credit score, also called a FICO score, is an actual number, between 300 and 850. The higher the number, the better: a score of 740 to 799 is considered very good, though the average is closer to 700. FICO is an acronym for Fair Isaac & Co., the company that is responsible for tabulating your credit score.

Revolving access means that as soon as you repay an amount you've borrowed, you can use it again.
