A Spin on Spending - Building Credit

Category: Arvest News


One of the first steps to building a good credit history is to know where you stand. Before you head to the dealership or hire a real estate agent, request a credit report, and take the necessary steps in improving your score. One way to do this is by making your loan payments on time. According to myfico.com, your credit payment history can make up 35 percent of your FICO credit score. The longer your loan payments are paid on time, the better your score can become.

It’s important to remember to keep your credit card balances low. Many of the credit bureaus’ scoring systems evaluate the amount of debt a person carries compared to their credit limits. If the amount owed is close to the limit, it’s likely to have a negative effect on your score. Maintaining high credit card balances can hurt you, even if your bills are paid on time each month.

Although it’s generally considered a plus to have established credit accounts, too many credit card accounts may have negative effects on your credit score. You should only open new accounts as needed.  When opening a new line of credit, don’t just jump at the first appealing offer – compare interest rates and fees beforehand.

Arvest Bank is proud to recently have been named in Oklahoma Magazine’s The Best of the Best of 2019.

According to the introduction accompanying this year’s selections, Oklahoma Magazine has compiled The Best of the Best in its July issue for 20 years to help its readers “find the finest in everything the state has to offer.”

The introduction also thanks the magazine’s readers for “your choices, your votes and your voices telling us who you think are the best of the best at what they do.”

In the “Bank” category, that includes Arvest.

“Arvest Bank is a top choice for mortgages, investments and trusts,” the article reads.

“On behalf of all our associates in Oklahoma, I want to thank Oklahoma Magazine and its readers for this recognition,” said Brad Krieger, executive vice president and regional manager for Arvest in Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. “We strive for excellence every day, and we believe this recognition reflects that. We are humbled and honored to be included.”

The Oklahoma Magazine recognition follows Arvest being named by Forbes magazine among its “Best-In-State Banks” in Oklahoma. Forbes also named Arvest one of the “World’s Best Banks” earlier this year.

64.6 Downtown Receives $25,000 Arvest Foundation Grant

Citizens of the Fort Smith area will enjoy a new downtown park thanks to a $25,000 donation from the Arvest Foundation. 

The gift was announced today at Gateway Park. Beth Presley, Roger Holroyd, Les Smith, and Mike Jacimore of Arvest Bank were on hand to present the check.

The funds will aid in the construction of the new Gateway Park located near the intersection of Rogers and Garrison Avenues. Gateway Park will feature three historical bronze statues. The key figure will be Judge Isaac C. Parker, joined by statues of John Carnall and Mother Mary Teresa Farrell, R.S.M., representing law, education, and healthcare. The new park is a 64.6 Downtown initiative and is being funded by the generosity of the community, including the Arvest Foundation.

When completed this fall, 64.6 Downtown will donate the park property to the City of Fort Smith. It will become a gathering place for residents and visitors alike to learn more about the contributions these three community leaders made in the late 1800s. The park will also include a flag plaza featuring flags of the United States, Arkansas, and the City of Fort Smith.

“64.6 Downtown creates vibrant spaces in Fort Smith to further economic development, creative place-making, arts and cultural events,” said Steve Clark, founder/chairman of the board for 64.6 Downtown. “Gateway Park is a reflection of how 64.6 Downtown’s program, The Unexpected, brought attention to an important intersection in downtown, with the activation of Spanish artist Okuda San Miguel’s Universal Chapel. The work transformed a simple white building into a gateway entry to downtown Fort Smith. Gateway Park is a continuation of the development of this important downtown entry point.” 

“We are pleased to present this donation on behalf of the Arvest Foundation to support the 64.6 Downtown initiative of the development of the Gateway Park,” Holroyd said. “This donation is just one of many we have made throughout the area. It demonstrates the foundation’s ongoing commitment to support parks, history and greenspace in our community.”
