That entirely depends on if you're willing to pay off all the cards except a small amount on one card.

I would start by paying down your credit card utilization to under 9%. That's probably the biggest thing hurting your credit.

As an example.....I had removed myself as AU b/c this shell card reports right at the limit every month.  I gained +22.

I gained 0 for having a collection removed. :smileymad:

That 90 day late is KILLING you.  It can take about 3 years to recover from that.

Can you goodwill the heck out of that?

Re: I need almost 100 point in 2 months....

i received a 32+ increase by paying my CC down to 0 that was with one reporting

 

pay all ur cards to 0 with one reporting a 9% balance im guessing you should get at least 30-50 points off the util alone

Re: I need almost 100 point in 2 months....

Thanks for the advice guys.

 

I'm unable to get the 90 days removed, Nelnet will not budge. Walmart has already removed 1 late and refuse to remove any more. I'm hoping my new Wally account with perfect payment history will outshine the closed one on review.

 

I will work on paying my balance down. I can get the collection removed but they want to charge me a $10 processing fee for removal, collectors are a bunch of miserable trolls.
