Going to Accumulate 5yrs of credit history in April Next????

[ Edited ]

Hi All,

 

Correct me if i'm calculationg my aaoa on my credit profile incorrectly. But I just realized that my cap1, paypal sc, walmart, creditone, bofa scc, are all going to make one year next year. Is that good ? or not ? and would that consider to be 5 yrs of credit history? Thanks in advance Smiley Very Happy.

If you got them all at the same time, then they are all going to be 1 year.  AAoA is a cummulative total, not individal.


AmEx PRG (NPSL) | AmEx Costco ($8.2K) | AmEx Delta Gold ($19.3K) | AmEx BCE ($5K) | Chase United Explorer ($10K) | Chase Sapphire Preferred ($7.5K) | Chase Freedom ($8.2K) | Discover it ($3K) | Capital One Quicksilver ($2.5K) | PayPal Extras ($2.5K) | Lowes ($3.3K) | Walmart ($4.3K) | Amazon ($2.5K) | Restoration Hardware ($8.8K) | Crate & Barrel ($8.3K)

Just FYI, credit karma calculated average age of OPEN accounts, so if you have closed accounts (which count towards fico AAoA), the two can be markedly different. To OP, 5 years of credit history means your oldest account is 5 years old. 5 year AAoA means the AVERAGE account age is 5 years. Having one card that is a year old or having 10 cards that are a year old will both give an AAoA of 1 year and a credit history of one year. 

In wallet: Ink Plus 10k, AMEX TE 25k. In bag: CSP 16k, USAA WMC 15k, Hyatt 13k, United MPE 12k, AMEX HHonors 3k. In SD: Cap 1 QS 5k, Discover IT 7k. FICO 08 says my EQ is now 844, was 510 in 2010.
