  1. Check over your credit report and dispute any errors that you see. Once any errors are corrected, your score should quickly improve.
  2. Request a limit increase on a credit card; this will raise the amount of credit available to you and have a positive impact on your score.
  3. If a credit issuer will not give you an increase in your credit limit, consider opening a new credit card account and not using the card.
  4. If any debt accounts are in collections, work on negotiating those balances and getting them paid off.
  5. Be added on to someone else’s credit card account as an authorized user.
