Now I already have a mortgage from Chase and a car loan from Citi so there is not really anything I need to work towards that I don't already have so raising my scores is a project with me, to see how high I can get them. Now working on raising them got me to thinking, what is the main reason everyone on here is working to raise their scores? To buy a car? A house? Bored and nothing better to do like me? I made up a poll and am really interested in knowing so I would really like your input. Inquiring minds want to know! Thanks a lot everybody.
    Nice thread buddie! My reasons:

    1. To be prepare for the best intr rate on my house
    2. Next car
    3. Make myself feel good
    4. See others get jealous or admire me
    5. Too show off and crack faces
    6. Show the world that I am a responsible person when it comes to credit
    7. Break loose from bad debt embarrassments

    Hey Meya, I did make up a poll but could not get it attached to this thread. When I clicked on your link it gave me a message saying I did not have permission to access this page. If you could help, I would appreciate it. Thanks a lot.

    Yeah, and I am not the only one doing this as a hobby Well mostly. I am hoping my car and homeowners insurance comes down because even our insurance premiums are based on credit.

    Good God! I only thought that 21st Century does that. They denied me car insurance years ago due to my credit report.

    Yes they pull your report. I know because I have found State Farm, Progressive and Nationwide on it. Don't ask why I have 3 vehicles insured with 3 insurance companies (long story). The inq's are soft but they are there. I am hoping that when I get into the good credit, I can get a reduction in premiums.

    My family has been with AAA for a while now. I don't know how their rates are but I do like their Roadside Assistance.

    I have Progressive myself and I must say that they will take care of you dearly especially on a claim. Their roadside is cool also, it says that they reimburse but I have not paid a dime out of my pocket when I needed tow's, locked out, or tire change.

    Default How have you used your credit score to benefit you?

    Talking to ColoNative got me to thinking and I wanted to get your ideas. How has your credit score helped you recently? Besides applying for other credit cards have you been able to (a) get that job that you thought your credit score might have hindered you, (b) financed the car you wanted at a rate that was even a surprise to you, (c) lower your insurance premiums or acquired insurance at really good rates, you see where I'm going with this.
    We all are working to either pay off current debt and increase our score but what benefits have you reaped as your score has increased ?
