Mine dropped to weekly. I think the Score Trending is daily, and others fall weekly. I also tweeked the bamzoo out of my settings to trigger as much as possible.


Could you share what you have done to tweak the system in a general way? Thanks.

Re: scorewatch

I just changed mine to alert me when an account increases more than $25.00.  That should trigger one for sure.

Re: scorewatch

You'll have to wait till it reports. Might be monthly or thereabouts anyway. I'll try that though.

Sure. Smiley Happy

Under Summery:
The best thing you can do in Score Trending (the legend graph) is set between Mortgage, Auto, and Equity. The scores will change on the left side. Change this to what ever is closest to your score each time it changes. When you trip the line above you should be notified right away I was told. That would be daily.

Under My Alert Preferences:
Category. This needs to match the settings for the Legend on the graph as described above and set to ON. Daily.

Then below were weekly.
Target Score. This should be set to CURRENT SCORE. Change this every time your score changes to match exactly. This should be set to ON.

Balance $ increase. = I set to ($1)
Balance % increase. = I set to (1%)
Dormant Card Activity. = I set to (1 months)

Thats about it. I don't know if these will make things work better for you, but 3 reps told me to do it this way.

If we never set higher goals we would never get as far.

Pizza that is exactly what I had set up with the exception of dormant cards. I find the lowest setting to be 3 months. Thanks.

Not true. 5% and 3 months are the lowest values in the dropdown.

Hmm. I thought Eq and MyFICO had the same Score Watch. I am currently using Score Watch through Equifax.

FICO SW and EQ SW both give a FICO score, but different products and interfaces by the same name so I'm told.

It's a trade mark name isn't it? Wouldn't Fair Isaacs own both. I would have thought it was the same product. In that case set to the lowest for % and months. Sorry. Then this might only apply for Equifax Score Watch. Smiley Sad

Got it. I have both for a few more days and I see the setting is indeed 1 month on the EQ SW.
