What would you do if you won $10,000?

Imagine you won $10,000. What would you do with it? Would you buy that new TV you’ve been eyeing and have one heck of a shopping spree for a new wardrobe? Or would you pay down your credit card or loan debt? 

The former seems more fun, but using the money to pay down your debts first could actually make your money go further. In fact, you could turn that $10,000 into thousands more! That’s because by paying down your debts, you could significantly improve your credit utilization, which makes up about 35% of your credit score. This is important because lowering your utilization—also known as your credit card balances—could help skyrocket your score, which would open you up for more lending opportunities and lower interest rates. 

In a nutshell, this $10,000 could translate into an approval for a house or save you thousands of dollars in interest rates on a new car.
