Re: Survey: How Many Open Accounts Do You Have?

TU says 17 accounts, 4 "unrated" (student loans that were consolidated)  and EQ says 20 and I think it has all as open...


But most of those are old, consolidated, student loans, CC that were canceled and still show up (USAA - reported it missing after leaving it on the car seat all day), or AU cards...I only have 6 accounts active that I use personally.


Guess I'm right with the pack ;-)


Another question to add in: out of the large about of accounts you have open, how many are student loan related? I have 10/20 that are SL for EQ and 7/17 for TU!

Current Scores: EQ: 740 (2/7/13)

Starting Score: 799
Current Score: 762
Goal Score: 800
