for getting a credit card? My highest score is with Experian - right now, a 633, but collection co. agreed to remove coll by Monday and I found one of my spouse's bankruptcy cards on my report (called Bank of America and they have said they would remove it), also HSBC is reporting a 9/2007 late on 5 accounts??? LOL I called them...I only have ONE account with them. Those are also supposed to be deleted soon. I am so glad I monitor my report.Anyway, I am wondering specifically about Bank of America, and USAA...I am paying off 15k in credit cards this weekend (almost 50 percent of what I owe) and expect my score to jump with all the above gone to about 700. I would like to apply for a zero percent card to consolidate the rest of my ccards until my house sells when I can pay it all off. Anyone know who pulls what credit reporting agency for cards?
