Re: 7 pt. score drop because of a $32 Walmart balance????

RonDawg - My EQ went up 27 pts. when the new Walmart account was reported.  TU went up 13pts, EX went up 18pts.

The opposite happened in my situation as compared to yours.

 

Maybe because I had so few accounts, that adding an account showed that lenders are looking at me a bit more.

 

That 702 looked so much 'purtier' than a 695.  :smileymad:

I also think its because of 3/4 cards are reporting balances. My utl went up to 3% from 1% and my eq score went up 6 points this month. Im waiting for walmart scores to see my TU score
