Re: How many accounts do you have?

Well since Peas and Hauling did it, here's mine in all its ugliness:
 
Credit At-A-Glance
Total past due [?] Credit history [?] Late payments [?]
No accounts past due 8 Years 28
Total balance of Your revolving accounts [?] $2,668 Your mortgages [?] None
Your installment loans [?] $0
Total number of Accounts [?] 20
Accounts with balances [?] 9
Accounts opened in past year [?] 8
Recent inquiries [?] 4
Collections [?] 0
Public Records [?] 7

Red Flag= Marks an aspect of your credit that is hurting your FICO® score.

Re: How many accounts do you have?

Thanks, Syl, I see now: that's where the flags start flapping!

I can't post the Accounts page...I won't. The red flags look like a string of red Christmas tree lights! :smileyvery-happy:
 
P.S. I tried to copy/paste a screen shot like you did Hauling, but it didn't work. This is the best I could do. :smileysad:

I saw your message on Forums Feedback and posted the blow-by-blow how-to's. I'm certain that there's a more streamlined way to do it, but my aged brain followed bman's pm'd instructions, and this is what I came up with, and it's all I know! LOL

I hear you on the Christmas lights. I used to call my J.Crew account over on TrueCredit my Christmas account because of all the yellows and oranges and reds (well, one orange and one red) scattered among the greenery! :smileywink:

Thanks for the reply Hauling. That's a chore to do that, but good to see, and thanks for doing that.

Re: How many accounts do you have?

You don't want to remove them-
 
I have over 30 accounts- and when the # reached 30 the flag went on but I had no score change. 
 
Let them fall off when their time comes-
