Utilization: To maintain your need score, you need to keep your utilization as low as possible. Ideally under 5%.

AutoPay: Don't run the chance of forgetting your payment. Set up AutoPay through your bank or the creditor.

Need for credit: Don't wait until you need credit. Apply for it strategically. Applying for additional credit in a short period of time will add a list of hard inquiries to your credit profile. each inquiry can drop your credit score anywhere from 2 to 15 points per inquiry. So only apply every 4-6 months. Inquires stay on you report for two years. However over time they lose their impact on your score. As you pass time milestones each 6 months!
