When do Equifax and Transunion update?

My Experian credit report updated with my new credit card balance this morning but Equifax and Transunion didn't. Does anyone know how long it takes for them to update? I am waiting to start pre-approval until these update and I don't want to spend $40 everyday to check them if it takes them a while to update.

Sign up for an account on creditkarma.com. It's free and will give you your Transunion credit report daily. Just disregard the scores. Transunion is usually the slowest of the 3 to update cc balances, so once it is updated there, it probably will have gone through Equifax already, too.

I know you said to ignore the scores on credit karma but I have a question about them. My score is 31 points lower on credit karma than the one I got from here. The myFICO score is the true correct score, right?

Yes, although myFICO score was a little lower than what my lender pulled on 8/13 but the one on Credit Karma is called a FAKO.  Ignore it and don't stress over it Smiley Happy
