I don't think so. I know what affects your credit score is how you used your credit limit and how you pay your balances monthly. If you don't use up your limit and you pay the total balances monthly, you can have a good score.

This is the first time I had ever applied for a loan. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the staff that answered any of my questions to the application process. Once this had all been completed the money was transferred quickly into my account. I will definitely be recommending 911PDAY .COM ( ) too my friends and family.

The factors that impact your credit score are as follows :

Payment history: 35%
Amounts owed: 30%
Length of credit history: 15%
How many types of credit in use: 10%
Account inquiries/New credit: 10%

Interest rates are no where connected to your credit score.
