I will soon be finishing paying off my car loan (yay!). This will be paid off with what is a normal monthly payment, not a large sum I'm throwing at the loan, so stretching the loan out longer (if I wanted to) isn't an option.
I have a credit card as well, which I've had for about two years. This credit card and the soon paid off car loan are the only lines of credit I have.
My credit score is really good right now and I would love to maintain it. I don't forsee needing to get a loan/mortgage any time in the next few years, but I would still like to maintain the credit score.
I think getting another credit card (which I plan on paying off every month and only using a fraction of the maximum credit) will help me in the long run to maintain my credit score, but I am not sure. Will it? What else can I do to maintain my credit score after paying off the car loan?
If there is another question on this site already that answers my question, feel free to point me that way.
I live in the USA.
