credit simulator tool questions

I was wondering how accurat the credit simulator is. It is telling me that if I pay a certain amount in a month that my cedit will go up substanitaly is that accurate or am I missing something? How do you know what days they report and the credit changes?

Re: credit simulator tool questions

Credit simulators are not very accurate. I would not put much stock into the results you get when you plug in the information on those.

 

As for reporting dates, depending on what report you pull and where you pull it from you can see the date reported. You can also call your creditor and ask them what day they report.
