Beverly teamed up with Daniel again to bring his readers a piece with 6 surprising tips on how to boost your credit score. Most consumers are interested in raising their credit score, but a lack of information and a sometimes confusing system can set them back. In this piece, these two credit mavens clear up some misconceptions and will put you on your way to a higher score. @BeverlyHarzog @USNews

Beverly also spoke to Blake Ellis at CNNMoney about credit lenders increasing willingness to give credit to borrowers with average or low credit scores. Some of the factors cited for the new trend are that the economy is turning around and banks need to increase revenue. However, borrowers are told to keep in mind that although they may be let back in the credit club, it may cost them. @CNNMoney
