Re: How to get credit score 750-800

I just closed Cap.One secondary to less credit limit and annual fee starting next year.

So now I am-

Amex Blu - 15K - 1 year old (My to go Card) - 100 to 1500 balance paid full every month

BofA Cash rewards Visa Sig - 20K - 2 years old (3 weeks to convert to visa platinum) - 0 balance

BofA Travel Rewards Visa Sig - 10K - 6mo. old (3 weeks to convert to visa platinum) - 0 balance

 

After reading thru this forum I think gardening is the best way to go !

Any suggestions?

When do you want to achieve a 750? If the target is in a few months, what you're doing is great. Maintain a low reported credit utilization ratio and you should be golden.

 

Also, you probably know that different scoring models give you different scores. You may already have a 750 from one of the FICO scoring models without knowing it. Smiley Wink
