My bad, should have put those glasses on first! Thanks for the pointing that out, now it makes sense.
in any case, i have to agree txjohn is a total poster boy for credit repair/build success:

Thanks for the update txjohn. You and hauling were the inspiration for me to update and add advantages accounts. My mix is now:
With inquiries, new accounts, etc. I lost 6 points so far on each of EQ and TU. The last three CUs are due to report, so I expect a further hit.
My objective was to do it in one period of time (Feb-May), as I requested and received line increases in all existing accounts at the same time I added the others. My AAoAs is now at about 6+ years and I don't anticipate that I'll need to do any more ap or cli activity in the near future.
I am appreciative of the example that you set and thank you for sharing the strategy and great results.

How do you keep up with all of those old and new accounts?
I only have seven and will be closing maybe two in a year.
