My scores are climbing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so glad that I found this site!  I worked on cleaning things up on my CR for the last 6 months, and in that time have come up from the low 500's with no TU score at all to yesterday's scorewatch scores of TU 665 and EQ 633. In february I got a secured card from my CU and  with careful usage over the last couple of months I have watched my scores increasing... It feels good to see my credit improving!

Starting Score: EQ 581,NO TU
Current Score: TU 676, EQ 663 EX 653
Goal Score: 700

Congrats:smileyvery-happy: I am in the same battle and it TRULY feels good when your coming from the bottom. One thing I have noticed though, is my score goal continues to increase. I remember when I would have been happy with just a 620 score but not anymore, it's like a drug the more the better the score the more you want.

Starting Score: 509
Current Score: 652 EQ 649TU
Goal Score: 700

Re: My scores are climbing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I couldn't agree more.  In 9/08 my FICO was 513 - I had to finance a car at 14.75%.


In 3/09 I bought a new car, my FICO was 635.  Financed at 7.9%


Now, three months later, my FICO jumped to 703!  So in less than 2 years, I managed to get my score up almost 200 points.


How did I do it?  Paid everyone off, worked with the collection companies to get PFD.  Refi'd my student loans and I think the biggest factor was TIME.  Thankfully the baddies on my report are now 5+  years old...

Starting Score: 3/2010 - TU = 635 EQ = 620
Current Score: 10/2010 - TU = 699 EQ = 743 EX = 709 (LO pull)
Goal Score: 1,000,000
