Because there's only 2 tradelines for the OP according to her sig, and 3 is mo' better? :smileywink:

 

This fact gets too often lost sometimes: there's more to FICO and financial life than CU's, even incredibly good ones like NFCU.

i agree however one can obtain many great tradelines without having to go with the frustration of cap one. many people do caue they arent fortunate like you or i or the op to be members of nfcu. i also agree in forms of building/rebuilding that 3 tradelines is best. i believe the op has 3 tradelines already
