what sort of score increase can you expect per month?

If you keep your utilization below 5%?

lets assume your payment history is going to be remain good, and nothing
else is changing to your report.

How many points is it likely to climb? 6 points a month? 10 points? 2 points?


FYI Experian sucks

Before I learned the tricks of the trade, just paying bills and doing nothing else, about 20 points a year.
The slide from grace is really more like gliding
And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid

Midnightvoice could you elaborate on the "tricks of the trade" that helped to increase more than 20 points a year. What things did you do to get extra increases?
 
Most of us here have read most of the posts on here: like paying bills on time, getting baddies off, GW and PFD, (flygirl) 1% to 9%, on time, all the time utli. Is there any other things that you have tried that has worked better for you that we don't know about-please educate us on your Tricks. Thanks!!!

Yes, EX does s*ck beachballs! Now to answer your question, there is no sure fire way to know exactly how many points your score will climb. That said, people with lower scores (400's-lower 600's) are more likely to see score increases than those in the 700's or higher.

Re: what sort of score increase can you expect per month?

what are the right cards to have, what approx. score to get a certain right card, and what CRA do they check? I know unsecured is better, all of mine are unsecured.
 
 
I forgot to say that I did read the link you posted. Now be honest with us.....you done someone a favor along the way-TU 803. You got something up your sleeve that you aren't telling us.
 
I also read the OP yesterday when it was posted, it was an awsome post.

Thanks Fused both of those links were very good. I saved both in Favorites to go back too.
 
I have seen the who gave me credit link many times on the forums, but never checked them out. I just thought they were a off the wall cc company. I didn't realize that it is a FICO site with good information.
 
The other link you added. I hadn't seen it before posted on the forums. It was good too.
