I'm so excited right now!  Over the last couple months I've tightened up my spending in order to pay off some credit card debt (albeit at 0% APR).  Dropping my utilization down from 36% to 1% bumped up my TransUnion FICO score from 709 to 740 despite apping for an AMEX charge!

 

Thanks to everyone on here for the great information!  With a little gardening I feel like I can hit my goal of 760 before I decide it's time to buy a house.  Thanks everyone!


Very nice!!!! CONGRATS!!!

 

I'm @ 24% right now, I wonder what kind of bump i'd get getting back down around 9%.
