    It is difficult to predict when your credit score will improve by 100 points. The only way to increase your score is by following consistent good credit behavior.

    Identify the factors in your credit report and general financial habits that are causing a dip in your score and what habits you need to continue. For instance, if you don’t regularly check your credit report, starting to might be a good idea. Sometimes credit reports contain errors or wrong or outdated information. You can review this information and ask for the error to be corrected. This should help raise your credit score.

    Ask for a credit limit raise since this reduces your overall credit utilization – one of the major factors used to calculate your credit score.

    These are minor changes. In terms of consistent behavior, paying all your bills on time or even early can help you improve your credit score since payment history makes up 35% of your FICO® Score.
