Congratulations!

A 188-point increase in 12 months is the stuff that legends are made of! And it's a testament to your perseverance and dedication to the task. Rebuilding is a tough road sometimes but as you know, the reward is oh, so sweet! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: from 501 to 689 in 12 mos.

Thanks for the responses.  I followed members recommendations here and started with 3 secured cards while I worked on my derogs.  2 things that every rebuilder should have is patience and persistance.  Im sure I couldve hit 700's but I'd rather let that last derog fall off.  No sense in poking something that is 7 years old.  The best part other than getting collections deleted was finding out I was eligible for NFCU.
