On the ScoreWatch report from MyFICO when it shows the inquiries it only shows the last 12 months.

Why would it not show the full 2 years?

Inquiries report for two years but only count in FICO scoring for one year.
 
myFICO reports don't show all of the information that's on a full report directly from a CRA.  As such, myFICO reports only show you the inquiries that count against your FICO score, which are those from the last twelve months.

How do you find out when the cc reports to the credit bureaus?

Sorry Tex im new at this too, I just remember reading that on these forums recently. I just assumed you could call and ask them.  Might take a little while to get someone who would know though ><

Almost all CCCs report on the date the statement drops (not the due date, but the statement closing date).

Re: Is it time for a new Credit Card?

I am looking at my own cc and it says that this months closing date was 4/24/08 and the bill is due on 5/21/08

So how do I go about this?

Should I have paid some before 4/24/08 then paid the balance off by 5/21/08???

Are you allowed to pay more than once per month?

Yep, that's the idea.
 
Yes, you can pay more than once a month.
