How does credit work and what am I doing wrong?
>>
just payoff all your debt as fast as possible, except your mortgage

don't borrow money, just collect rewards/interest

I was you in a previous life.

Try get better cards with 0% Apr introductory.

Keep card utilize under 30%.

So $100 card never borrow over $30.

Take 1 or 2 cards. Use. 1st bill come pay minimum. Next bill pay off.

Get a few more cards no secured and every few months ask them all if they will lower your interest and up your limit.

780 FICO checking in.

Sign up for credit karma and do what they suggest if u want handholding.

Obviosly keep up on your payments as it seems u are. Then its just time. After 0%apr is over pay the anual 5 and stop using that card but don't cancel.

If you really want to make a change man, go through Financial Peace University it's like $100 and local churches host them all the time. It might be cheesy, you may not like it, but it works. Seriously man. If you want to make a change, do it. If you just want to feel sorry for yourself don't bother.

are you sure those credit cards are reporting to credit bureaus? after i had my first credit card for a year my score was good enough to get almost any credit card, other than the invitation only/high roller cards.
