How long should I wait?

A couple of questions here from the newbie....


1.  Portfolio Recovery Associates agreed to delete the tradeline as of last Friday.  How long should I wait before I run a new credit report to see if its deleted yet?  I don't want to keep running the reports from all three bureaus, as it can get pricey.


2.  I joined Score Watch here on MyFico to keep track of changes.  How often are they updated?  How reliable do you find the information?  I am trying to pay down all my credit cards, I just got 2 left (which I hope to pay down to 10% in the next 3 months) I wanted to see how my score changes with paying down my balances.  


Thanks for your help in advance!

It can take 30 - 90 days to update.


As for Scorewatch I don't use it and have seen mixed reviews.  Do a search and see what you find.
