Reporting the balance the day they post the payment?

I paid my walmart balance in full on the 14th, of course since it is a new account, they hold it for 7-14 days, but my first payment is due on the 25th, but my report just updated and is showing my PAID balance which is 0, as the balance I just paid!!! My fako went up 7points, but I thought it wouldnt show a balance since it paid and the Walmart site shows 0 balance?!?!?!

creditors can post anytime they want, many companies post mid month you might've just gotten lucky with the timing.

My report shows a $391 balance, that is paid, but and processed on the site, and the site shows a 0 balance. I didnt want a balance reported, hence paying it early. :smileysad:

Yeah. :smileysad: Well, when I pulled the report from this site, the balance is reported as well, but the score stayed the same. hmm
