Your credit score is based on several criteria. The amount and type of lines that you have, your payment history for those lines, and registered liens, collections or judgements against you and how many times your credit has been viewed by members.
So if you have a collection of credit cards, most of which you don't use, cancel them. The more debt you have the more it will negatively impact your credit score. So the collection of store and major credit cards is not a good thing. Keep 2 and ditch the rest. Secondly, stop missing payments! It is very messy to keep missing the statement dates, not to mention expensive as most credit cards now charge a late payment fee. The good news is that the longer you go without missing payment the less of an effect the missed payments have. Make sure you do not miss more. It shows poor financial organization and makes you look unreliable.
If you have collections liens or judgements, you can find out if the have been discharged. If you have paid them and they are not showing as being discharged you need to contact the credit bureau and have that fixed.
Finally, do not continuously apply for credit cards. Every time a member (credit company) requests to view your history it reduces your score. So when they guy at the hockey game tells you applying is free, he is very very wrong, it costs you points off your credit score. The reason for this is that a constant flow of applications makes you look like a credit seeker. Not a good label. So even though you can get a discount for applying, unless we are talking a significant amount of money, don't apply for the store credit card.
If you credit needs a lot of repair, try getting a small loan. In Canada I would recommend an RSP loan. Then just make the monthly payments, DO NOT pay it off ahead of schedule; it is called a credit HISTORY which won't help you if there is no history to see because you paid the loan off before it matured. If you do something like this, do not miss any payments or all you have done is made a bad situation worse.
That is a lot of information. Hope some of it helps.
