Will I see much of jump?

I have one CC from my credit union, $1000.00  this months statement is going to show a balance of $173.00.   Do you think I'll see any increase in my scores?  EQ 571 TU 568  TIA!

let,

 

Good job on paying down your debt.  The jump will depend on how much other debt you have and your credit limits.  What will this do to your utilization percentage?

 Thanks,I was determined to get it down! The only other thing I have is an unsecured loan for $2,400.00 at this same credit union. I don't have any other credit cards...

No guarantee but I'd say you might see anywhere from 20-40 points.  

 

Congrats on paying that down!

Re: Will I see much of jump?

Yes, you should see a nice jump.  Basically you are going from 64% utilization down to 17%.  To get the best results get it under $100.  FICO likes to see between 1% and 9%.  Keep us posted though.
