Simply because... with a long credit history, a prospective lender can see how you have operated your credit facility over a considerable period.

Why do banks place holds on credit card courtesy checks?

I used to work at a bank. The reason the bank I worked at did it was because the credit card company the checks are drawn off of can be returned to the bank up to 3 years after it was deposited, which causes the bank to take the loss. The credit card companies can take that long to decide not to honor the check, while the bank has already given you the money for it. They do it to protect themselves from losses and the customer from fraud as well.

How do you build up credit history?

Your credit history is simply the period of time you have had open lines of credit. Say you had five credit cards and you kept them each for exactly one year and then closed each of them. You would have five credit years of history but most scoring systems would see that as one year of credit history. If you had one credit card account for one year and another for the subsequent year and so on for five years, you would also have five years of credit history, but, again, scoring systems would still see that as (more or less) one year of credit history. Now, if you had one credit card for five years, then the scoring systems would definitely see that as five yeas of credit history. So, creditors and scoring systems look at how long you have maintained each line of credit and the longer the better.
