Huge score jump into the 7's

Well I have been rebuilding for two years  finally got EQ and EX  straight and my first credit card reported this morning.  Went from 9002 on both EQ and EX  to fako's  726 EX and 717 EQ.  Transition still has one baddie on it that's in dispute and at 563. Trying to buy fico's from here and it said the servers to busy.   Now just to get Lincoln tech removed from TU and IM good to go.  It says 1 thing bringing my good scores down is no credit card over 2k showing so my question is what credit card's to apply for that I will likely to be approved for  that would give me a 2k+ limit and only check EX and EQ.  Thanks for any input you can offer


Starting Score: TU 583, EX 683, EQ 653
Current Score: 10/12/14 TU 743 9/24/2014 EQ FICO 751,12/17/2014 EXPERIAN 772
Goal Score: 750

Re: Huge score jump into the 7's

It had been my understanding that a single card's CL didn't factor into the score, and it was all about UTIL.  Can you/someone clarify that point?

Re: Huge score jump into the 7's

AFAIK anything under 9% is the same, although there may be a negative difference at 0%, according to a few
