Just getting frustrated. I guess this is kinda like a grown up "Are we there yet?!" Lol. My credit has been stuck around 600 for a while now. I financed a new Harley in August, set up automatic withdrawal payments where I'm paying more than $100 extra every month, been utilizing a Capital One card (using the tips from members here). When can I expect some big jump? If I would miss ONE payment a day late, I'm sure it would probably drop 50 points or so. I'm trying my best here and it seems like nothing is changing. Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks for the vent haha.
Hey there! I know that it feels like forever - FICO scores are time dependent though, so as long as u keep plugging, u will see a major jump. Great job keeping up with ur payments and utilization. Do u have any other cards tho? From what I hear, the magic # of revolving accts is supposedly 3. Maybe a secured card will work for u as well. How about ur CR - any baddies to GW or get removed? Whats ur AAoA? Im sure that the experts here will want to know more about ur CR to give u some sound advice.
Best of luck!

Dont be overly paranoid about making a payment "one day late."
That is not a reportable delinquency to a CRA. A reportable 30-late is based on being more than 30 days past the billing due date, not the billing date.
You have a 30-day window after an account becomes delinquent before a delinquency becomes reportable.
