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

+1, it definitely won't take months to update. They should be updated by this time next month.

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.
