Lowe's wasted no time reporting!

I opened Lowe's 11/11/2012 and it reported 11/11/2012!!! The 3500 limit has helped my utilization! I'm now at 8%, and should be much lower in the next few days as two more zero balances will report!

Re: Lowe's wasted no time reporting!

You got that straight. Not only did they not waste time reporting, they also reported my opening balance as I used the card immediately to buy appliances for my new house. OUCH!  Score dropped like a rock.  Oh well, at least it will improve with time.

Starting Score: 10/1/2011 EQ 568 TU 593

Def a better strategy to open the card first then use it after it reports if you can. 

 

Mine reported next day as well!

I am so glad that I didn't use mine yet.  Now it gives me time to use it if I wish, and have it paid off before it reports again!
