Re: My score drop 14 points

If you pay your card with the $400 limit down to zero (and don't increase the balance on your other card), you'll get a nice boost for:

 

--Reducing your overal util%

--No longer having a card that's close to maxed out

--Having a zero balance on one of your cards.

 

If that balance going from 0 to $300 was the only thing that changed when your score dropped 14 points, then paying it back to zero will probably get you back all of those points.

From what I understand your utilization is MOST of you score... I mean, doesn't it make sense?? Geez.... wouldn't it be nice if the HIGHER UTIL meant higher score hahaha


Utilization is 30% of your FICO score.   That is a big chunk, but it is not most.
