Got me a $1000 shared secured loan my local credit union!

Thinking about getting a second secured credit card to ticken my file and be done and wait 6 to 7 months to see where my score is.

I would if you only have the 1 card: cards 1+2 and installment loans 1+2 were straight positives for me when they reported when my file was thin (albeit with derogs).

 

Also will build payment history faster, though there's diminishing returns there admittedly.

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 683, EQ 8 690, TU 710, EX 715 (01/01/15)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/16)
