Sorry,  that score isn't real.  We call those FAKOS, because they are not your true FICO score.

Re: improve my credit score

It's going to help with your utility, and it's going to add a new positive TL.  On the downside, you will take an initial hit from the Inquiry and on your AAoA due to a new account being listed.  These initial hits will fade fairly quickly, it's only a temp thing, but goes positive toward your scores.  Hope that was clear.

Re: improve my credit score

Just saw your other post.  Yes, there are some CUs and others that offer a TU score.  You can get one model here, and another if you have a Walmart credit card.  There are three major ones.  TU98, TU04 and TU08.

Your new loan will be an installment loan, no big factor in Fico scoring.  Did they require you to close the paid off cards? 


Starting Score: 500's
Current Score: 773 EQ(DCU), 757 TU(Barclay), 788 EX(Credit.com)
Goal Score:760 X 3
