Transunion finally dropped that last CA.  Can't believe I spent 16 bucks on an outdated report a week ago.  Convince me it's not worth the money yet!!

Re: 2012 Results and 2013 Goals

I'm not applying for anything between now and then, and I have a 30 day late aging to a year then, so that would be the smart thing to do.  We'll see how long it lasts.  This is more difficult than gardening for me.

Re: 2012 Results and 2013 Goals

Sigh...

 

Just had to edit a bit of the progress.  In my excitement I didn't fully check into one of the derogs I thought was gone.  My 60 and 90 day lates were from 24+ months ago, in fact the 60 hit 3 years this month, and the 90 will next month.  Because of this, the payment history on MyFICO, as well as EIDT didn't go back far enough and I didn't notice them.  Sucks, but whatever.  I'm still happy with the late year progress I've made.  Now though I have no idea how I'm going to get rid of those, besides waiting another 4 years.

 

Still happy to see 676 on TU.

Re: 2012 Results and 2013 Goals

Submitted my BBB complaint for Verizon, we'll see how far that goes.  Should be hearing initial contact in the next day or two.

 

Also got a call back regarding my Executive Office Cap1 CLI request.  I've officially requested 2k, I don't think this is unreasonable for an amount, however I could understand if I was rejected based on a 30 day late with another company in the last 12 months.  She'll be getting back to me in about 72 hours.

Re: 2012 Results and 2013 Goals

Nailed it!

 

Capital One just upped my CL to $2,000.  The highest CL I've ever had, lol.  They are also adding 1% cash back, plus 50% annual reward (Not sure how that works, can anyone answer?)
