I've heard that the limit reports on US Bank siggy cards, and If it continues to report, I'll be fine with that.  But if it doesn't, I'll be cool with that too as any balance reported wouldn't count toward utilization (except on the antique TU98 provided here at MyFico.)  It would be like an Amex charge card in that respect.  It would essentially be a hidden credit limit, though not a hidden account.

My CL is $15,000.  The CSR said that it would NOT be a new account, BUT there would be a new account number that would REPLACE my existing account on my reports.  


I got a slightly different version than what you did.  I was told that my new Cash+ account would keep that same acct number, along with my low interest and 12K CL.  I guess I will find out in a couple of days.  As of todays log in to my account, nothing has changed.  I will let everyone know how mine turns out.

Android, you sure about the fact that it is treated like an Amex charge card when a limit isn't reported? I thought it was treated like Amex charge cards are treated under fico 98 but for all fico scoring models. Ie. the high balance is used as limit. I thought fico 4/8 models stopped taking balance into account for Amex charge cards because the terms show as 1 month. While a visa sig without limit reporting is reported as revolving, the fico4/8 use the high balance as limit as opposed to ignoring it.

I think you are right.  I just looked at my siggy cards on EQ and TU and they are listed as revolving but defined as "flexible spending credit card", and not "open".  I still don't think they are counted in utilization though (except for TU98).  Maybe I'll do a test this month and leave a balance on one of the siggies and see what happens.  I'm almost positive that when I let a high balance report a year or two ago on a BOA siggy card, it affected TU98 dramatically, but not EQ (Beacon 5).

This is correct AFAIK for even older versions of FICO too.

Current Score: EQ 04 700, TU 04 731, EX 98 725 (05/24/15)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/16)

Sorry I wasn't clear.  Yes for all versions of FICO in use.

 

Android, if you look at an AMEX charge card, it will show terms: 1 month.  I think this is the field that FICO 4/8 use to determine if they should use the balance in util % calculations.

Ok. I heard they're very conservative.  Have you joined Firstmark CU?
