Credit Sesame out for January!

Bring your scores, how'd you do? How accurate do you think it is, based on your EX profile?


Mine skyrocketed to 721.  It's always been abnormally high compared to my FICO scores of EQ/TU, so I take it with a grain of salt, but it's still nice to see.

Re: Credit Sesame out for January!

+31 for me.   It says " Well, it's not the worst credit score that we've seen." LOL. Thanks a lot Credit Sesame, how encouraging! ;-)


I'm at a 620 with CreditSesame due to a deletion, lower util, and adding another card. I expect to continue to increase in the future since 2 creditors still havent reported my payments for December/CRA's havent updated these lines yet.




Based on my EX profile, I think this is pretty accurate as EX is my worst report --including a 2010 CO from old CU and 2 paid collections (one to be removed this month though, yay!).

Re: Credit Sesame out for January!

I went up 29 points an my DW went up 33. Can't wait to see what happens when I bring my UTI down from 78% to almost 9%.
