Today after 2 months I have gone from low 500's to 743 on equifax after my last collection was removed
Apped and was approved for Discover IT card $1,500
Refinanced my Santander Auto loan that was at 17% to USAA at 3.75%!!!
Also was approved for USAA Amex rewards with limit of $2500-7500 final approval within 48 hours, underwriter already processed approval!!
Now just have a couple more baddies on EX AND TU to work on to start working on my goal of getting a mortgage!
Feels good to have a foot in the door to primeville

WOW! Thats awesome! I have a few collections I am about to pay. Hope my score jumps like yours!!
Did you get your collections to PFD or were they just old accounts that fell off?
