Credit scores are calculated by consumer credit bureaus. Every credit bureau has its own unique formula to calculate your score so they differ slightly. But the average score rating is:

  • Bad credit: 350 to 619
  • Fair credit: 620 to 659
  • Good credit: 660 to 749
  • Excellent credit: 750 to 850

You should consider credit cards for bad credit or secured credit cards.
