Ok...paid Orchard to 7% util...Orchard posted...now it's a waiting game

They have been reporting on the 31st of every month.  Fico Simulator says minimum 50 points.

 

My question is this.  Can I check on Sept. 1st already? Or is that too soon?

 

I am DYING to find out what my score will be.

They usually post after their statement comes out around the 10th-13th? I usually see mine updated around that time.

So you have a monitoring service? And even though they use the balance on the last day of the month it is still reported a week or so later right?

I use CCT to check my credit report daily. Yes..the balance showing on the last day is reported a week later after the statement is sent.

CCT = CreditCheckTotal.com. The scores they provide are FAKO but good monitoring tool.

 

Yes, they have a 30 day free trial. However, during the trial period you cannot get free updated reports daily. You will have to wait after the trial period expires. I believe the membership is like $10.00 a month but you can call the customer service and they will drop the fee to like $8.95 a month.

I like CCT, too.

 

They have a 7 day trial period - during which you cannot pull additional reports.

They are $19.95 a month - if you call in they will reduce it to $9.95 a month for six months.

Great advantage is you can pull all 3. 

Ignore all the FAKO scores and advice - you will hurt yourself - think of them as the Sirens and stay far far away.

You can also pull a full and detailed report including soft inquiries by Disputing TU or EXP on the CCT site - another plus.

Post of the day! Smiley Very Happy

I don't know how many posts I've read where someone says that their score report says that they need to do some wacko thing. It's always from a FAKO report.
