Your credit score.
Think of it as your reputation in numerical form.

Your credit score can open – or close – a lot of doors. Not only does it determine whether or not you can get a loan, it also helps decide the interest rate you’ll receive. Take care of it, and it will take care of you. It’s as simple as that.

Many financial experts suggest you review your credit report at least once a year. In 2004, congress passed the Fair Credit Reporting Act, which entitles you to receive a free credit report once a year. You can call or write any of the three credit reporting agencies for your free report.
