OK Experts....What now?

Filed for Ch7 back in March. Discharged in July.

Established two credit cards with Cap 1

Bought a used car with Americredit (horrible rate but I can live with it)

Disputed all inaccuracies (and then some) on all 3 CRAs

Everything on time.

 

Credit score still hanging just below 600.

 

Any ideas that I haven't thought of to rebuild score?

Re: OK Experts....What now?

Have you read the 7 to 700 guide yet?  You need to give it some time now.  You'll make your next move in 6mo.  (Assuming the car is reporting to all 3 CRAs, skip the Credit Builder loan).
