For example, regularly shopping at one shop can add up your rewards quickly…as can flying. Instead of focusing on good or bad reward programs, its best to focus on which reward programs match with your lifestyle.

    Hi Adonica, you actually have many different credit scores, depending on the bureau you’re pulling the score from and the scoring model that they use. You can learn more about credit score differences here: https://www.creditkarma.com/article/differentscores
