BUMMER!!!!!

Just lost 12points by paying too much on my cc. I was at 1% util and I went to 0% t.u. fico was 739 now 727. I slipped trying to tweek my scores before I loose my last baddies. I have less than 2months to loose all remaining baddies(bk, and accs.). I'm hoping for a great success story. So beware rebuilders of my mistake.

Starting Score: 550-tu 550-eq
Current Score: 745-tu 777-eq (ex-736 lo)
Goal Score: 800-tu 800-eq

Buy a pack of gum and let the balance hit the statement, then your scores will rebound. You are doing great!

Re: BUMMER!!!!!

Shoot, I just paid down one of my cap one card from 90% util to 0%. I better go charge a pack of gum on that sucker.

 

My other Cap one card also just got PIF from 5% util to 0%

Re: BUMMER!!!!!

Do you guys really charge a pack of gum on a credit card? I would buy maybe a drink or two. I don't feel right charging a pack of gum on a credit card. I can see the cashier saying...forrealz?

TU: 603 – EQ: 569 – EX: N/A – May 2010
