Edpuzzle: How to Build Credit from Scratch!

Today we have TWO videos that might help your students save thousands in on to find out how!

The first video from TwoCents is titled "How to Build Credit from Scratch!" and it details the steps you can take to start building your credit score from the bottom up by diving into some of the options available to new users to credit.



The second video is a re-release from our video library titled "What Goes Into Your Credit Score?" This video dives deeper into the individual factors that impact your score and how to keep increasing your credit once you have it!
