From 585 to 660

In one month.  I paid off about 4 to 5 negative accounts I defaulted on years ago so I have no more balances in debt.   I still wanted to better my credit so I wanted to get more LOC that I knew I wasn't going to use....... 

 

I have $2k on a NFCU CC, and I had a $500 navcheck.  Well a few weeks ago I increased my navcheck to $2k and they actually approved it.... (I wish I asked for more maybe).....  That was a few weeks ago when I was 585, and that score was pulled soon as I paid all my balances in collections. 

 

Well I updated my report and it's 660 now (experian)  I'm beyond excited right now.  The FICO score is the most accurate one right?  I really want to see what my scores are straight across

I really wouldn't ask for more with your score only being 585 at the point, now would be a different story, but 660 experian score or Fico score would be very different because 

 

1. It's not the same bureau since you can't buy a Experian Fico score. Only ways are  a) Become a member of PSECU credit union (PA residents only) b) apply for a mortgage loan c) apply for an Amex 

 

2. Not to mention the credit reports could be missing a few things from bureau to bureau/
