So I put away about 300 to 400 dollars each mont into my savings as if I had a car payment each month, and pay money toward my credit caed to try and build a credit history. Is there any other tips to what I could do to save more money and build my credit up?


Mike D1,


I would highly recommend you give the Financial Improvement Team (FIT) a call. FIT helps members with Debt Management, budgeting and building and maintaining good credit. If you would like to speak to this team, please call (800) 245-9360 between the hours of 8am-6pm central time. Best of luck to you!

Hey, I didn't know there was a Financial Improvement Team.  I've got a friend who could really benefit from that as her salary has dropped and it took a while for her to stop spending like a lottery winner.   I'm passing the info along.
