How long until reports update??

I recently paid down almost all of my debt, and I was wondering, how long does it *typically* take to see a change on your credit report? I imagine a few months, but I just wanted to be sure so I can stop checking my reports and scores like a fanatic. I may be mildly addicted to my credit since actively viewing this site. Oh well, at least it's a positive addiction...kinda. :smileywink:



Current: TU (Wal-Mart) 640 EQ (myFICO) 627 EX 628 as of 10/12
BK Discharged 08/10 (The dark times)
NavChek (5000) Cap1 (2500 & 1000) hhGregg (1500) Amazon (900) & WalMart (500) Lowes (300)

Goal: No apps until 07/2013 & 700's across the board

Re: How long until reports update??

Lenders typically report monthly, so I would give it around 30 days to show up.

FICO 04 scores: 809 (EQ) 812 (EX) 818 (TU)

Amex Platinum NPSL - Citi HHonors Sig. $58k - BMW Ultimate $40k
Chase Sapphire Preferred $62k - Merrill Lynch + Signature $41k - USAA Rate Advantage $28k
NFCU Flagship Signature $50k - USAA Cash Rewards AMEX $28k
Citi Platinum Select / AAdvantage Signature $31k - Chase Amtrak Rewards World MC $41k

Each account will generally update several days after the statement closes. Generally, this update can be seen instanty on Experian, within several days on Equifax, within 1-2 weeks on TransUnion, or within a month on Innovis if your creditor uses them.

 

In other words, if you make a payment on the first day of your new billing cycle, it could take over a month to see it on your reports.
