How is my credit limit determined?
Each credit card you apply for comes with something called a credit limit. A credit limit is the maximum amount you can borrow before you have to start paying down the debt. Credit limits depend on a variety of factors including, income, existing debt and the amount of credit you have on other credit cards you own.
How do credit cards affect my credit score?
A credit score is a 3 digit number (300-850) that indicates how trustworthy of a borrower you are. Credit cards actually account for 35% of your credit score. Credit bureaus assess your payment history to determine your credit score. When you miss a minimum payment, it hurts your score which makes it harder for you to apply for loans and other forms of credit in the future.
