Re: I love credit unions!

Thanks everyone!  I owe it to my fico.   I didn't know about utilization, until I saw the my fico forums.  They were such small cards, a couple of tanks of fuel for my truck would


max them  Used them for points and to pay bills, then paid them off when I got the bill  I didn't realize they reported BEFORE the payment was due.:smileysurprised:


I actually got the personal loan just for another TL.  The reason I asked about the utilization is, it seems I'm just borrowing from Peter to pay Paul.  It does hike up the DTI
