Re: Have a interesting situation coming up

I hear ya. I had to let a card report this month with a high balance due to storm related items. Indy score today dropped 30 pts from this utilization change. I've already paid off card and paid all my other balances on new cards except for zync. I'm nervous as hell right now with this temporary bump on my CR. Next month ill gain pts back but don't like having this drop on report so soon after getting new cards.

This.

 

I transferred several balances to one card to take advantage of a 0% BT offer, but only because the card was being upgraded to a Signature card that does not report the CL.  So, I'm at  80% utilization right now and the card still hasn't changed to the signature version (statement updates in one week!).  And I've gotten 3 new cards over the past 6 weeks, so yeah, I'm worried, too; I would hate for anything to jeopardize my relationship with the new card issuers...

Re: Have a interesting situation coming up

A one month swing in balances is never something to sweat. Credit cards are designed for short-term float, it's not a big deal.

This forum is way outside the bell curve, AA is not nearly as common as the members of this forum make it out to be.

Go back to your normal habits / balances next month (or at least making progress on them) and you'll be fine.
