4th of July slowing down credit updates?

One of my tradelines always updates on the 3-5th of the month and according to my experian it still hasnt updated. Maybe tomorrow?

 

Anyone else experiencing this?

 

Lots of anxiety because once it posts (paid a bunch down, waiting for score increase) I'll be getting an auto loan.

I'm in the same boat. My mortgage & auto usually report on the 4th & 5th. I would guess that between July 1st falling on a Sunday (not a business day) & the 4th of July also not being a business day, things are slower than usual.

Just speculation on my part but I think that both creditors and the CRAs will be delayed by a few days due to July 1 being a Sunday and also the July 4 holiday

Banks =/.  All done by computer anyway, just batch it up and go automagically, but no....

 

I don't understand the non-business day policy of banks these days.  Even in the smaller lenders where it's just one person triggering one batch, and it's the same script run over and over again against their consumer loan database.

 

Maybe the next time I work at a lender I'll ask one of the business folks why they do that, but it's nearly universal.

It's one thing when it's a "holiday", but when it's a federal holiday, forget it.

I'm impatient to begin with, and when I'm waiting on a score increase that could send me over 720 possibly, I'm a NERVOUS FRIGGIN WRECK!! lol
