49 Point Increase!!! I'll Take It!!!

Wow!! So just from decreasing my utilization from 51% to 15% my transunion fico went from 582 to 631!!!! Knowledge is power!!! I have a long way to go but it's small success like this that gives me motivation to keep going! My finance company had been reporting a 30day late status in error which they fixed so that might have helped the score boost as well. Now...if I can just get Equifax to budge I'll be on a roll!!

Re: 49 Point Increase!!! I'll Take It!!!

I want to get my util down from 108% and see what it does for me. I could only hope it was close to 50 points or more, that would be excellent. Problem is, some of my utility is from charged off accounts that I may just end up paying and GW'ing til I'm blue in the face.
