Re: Finally broke 700

If you dont mind sharing, what moves did you make that took you from mid 600's to 700? this is my goal by the end of the year, and i added 4 new trade lines to help me (opposed to 1 sub prime toy limit trade line). This should motivate me. 


Current EQ:719 EX: 701 TU:713

Re: Finally broke 700

I am 5 points-count 'em-5 points away from 700 on my EQ. So close I can taste it. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I can't wait to sit at around 780/800...that's my ultimate goal Smiley Wink

 

 

started mid 500's. Disputed incorrect items and within a month or two my scores have skyrocketed and continue to do so
EQ: 755 as of 8/2013
TU: 700
Experian(or as I call them, the devil) I have no clue, they haven't released my report
Goal=801 across the board!!! Not too far from this, hoping to garden until Christmas 2013

CONGRATS2U!!!

 

Was going to start this thread myself tonight in fact. Found out that I just broke 700 on my Experian score with at 713. TU and EQ are taking what feels to be years to remove a recent deleted account. Like Heinz ketchup "Anticipation is making me wait....."

Re: Finally broke 700

Thanks! Pulled EQ on 9/1 and jumped to 731. Midland collection account was deleted. Had an app spree on Saturday so my score dropped to 720 but I will take it. My uti will drop once my new accounts report and I'm hoping for a little boost.

TU just updated my deleted CO from I. C. Systems. I'm at 712 at TU as well. Waiting on slowpose EQ before I declare the trifecta!

 

Many great posts on this board helped me to even think about how to improve my score or to even care about my actions as they relate to credit. Alot of income helped me to gloss over some very simple mistakes.
