How Much are You Willing to Pay for that Poor Credit Score??


How Much are You Willing to Pay
for that Poor Credit Score??

     In a number of my past posts, I've talked of the importance of building and maintaining good Credit and Credit Scores.  In my post, "Are YOU making your financial life harder than it need to be?", I introduced the fact that many of our daily services and utilities (and their costs) are directly linked to the quality/level of our Credit Scores.  

     In  "What's Your Great American Novel read like?  The clues within your Credit Report" ... I spoke of the many ways that your Credit Report reads much like a map. Only the map is one that shows your financial path, history, and decision-making abilities regarding your debts and credit.

    The message from both posts is simple:  Have good Credit and Credit Scores, you pay less for services and goods.  Have poor Credit and Credit Scores and you pay more, IF you've been able to obtain the goods or services at all.  Credit Scores and Credit Reports reveal all of that and more.

     Yesterday, ABC News released an article that adds to the  arguments made within each of my posts.  The article proved just how many ways and how hard your piggybank can be hit by 3 different levels of Credit Scores.  The comparisons shown between each level of Credit "quality" and the expenditures and savings tied to them, were quite remarkable.

     This informative ABC News piece showed the costs and ramifications of those factors as they relate to:

  • Auto insurance coverage 
  • Auto Loan payments
  • Mortgage payments
  • Credit Card payments  

     After showing the dollar comparisons, they went one step further and totaled the extra costs revealed for each drop in Credit level.  ABC News called the results revealed "eye-popping".  I simply say, "OUCH!"  

     The person with poor credit paid over $4,331.72 extra for their services and debts each year then the example with good credit did.  Just think of what this adds up to over years of having poor credit.  Again I say ... "OUCH!"

     I think it's important that this ABC News report showed differing levels of Credit Scores.  I also think the hard cold facts and numbers shown are hard to overlook or deny.  And they prove that even small Credit Score improvements can make a big difference in dollars saved or spent ... and that the effort to make improvements is one well-worth making.  

     So I say ... If you're looking for the motivation to start the process to improve your Credit Scores and lower your debt, you shouldn't have to look any further than this ABC News article.
