is creditsesame account balances accurate?

i am just about to apply for new cards, but i noticed that creditsesame is still reflecting my old card balances. does anyone else have the same issue?

for CK all my balances have been updated. Creditsesame on the other hand is still using balances from 2 cycles ago for 1 of my account, and the remaining 3 accounts have balances reflected from last statement, not the current one.

 

is it a problem with creditsesame itself or my experian isn't updated at all? Smiley Sad

CS is showing last month's balance for me (well I haven't had a balance since last Aug. or something, so it's still showing as 0). CK is showing the correct CC balance for me ($138).

Re: is creditsesame account balances accurate?

Do u know if this is a problem with cs itself? Or is experian just lagging behind the other CRAs in general?

CS updates once a month and when it does (on mine anyway) it's two months behind what Experian reports directly.

Re: is creditsesame account balances accurate?

Yes. Aside from the fact that CS updates only once a month, the last two times they've failed to update any account info -- promising each time that it would be done the next month.They've updated the score, but not the accounts.

 

But I checked my Experian CR and it is definitely updated. The problem is only with CS -- a site that seems more useless every day.

Which I find strange considering I get credit usage(UTL) updates from them every few days.
