Re: My introduction I am new

Orchard was my favorite rebuilding card.

 

OP, if this is your first open CC - and being that it's a bank card, you should see some good FICO score points - maybe 20 or so (YMMV, of course) when it reports.  Congratulations!

 

Also remember you can try the ten day free trial for ScoreWatch.  That'll show you your FICO score for Equifax, as well as your report and tips on how different actions will impact your score as you move forward.  If you cancel within 10 days, it's free - otherwise keep it open for ongoing score updates.  I loved ScoreWatch when I was rebuilding - it was probably my most helpful tool.

I figured that I would use the card for few months and check the score again around xmass time. I just checked my credit score with anualcreditscore.com and it came to 599 so few months from now I will see how it goes. 

My limit is around $200 i think so going to try to use it towards gas for the car and bike. Hopefully I will get a great xmass gift and fall in 620 range.

Starting Score: 599
Current Score: 599
Goal Score: 650

The credit score you got from annualcreditscore is not a FICO, is it?

YMMV is your mileage may vary.

Starting Score: EQ 681 5/2011, EX 656 6/2011 (PSECU), TU98 642 6/2011
Current Score: EQ 741 12/2011, EX 730 08/15 (PSECU), TU08 710 08/15
Goal Score: 725+ across the board

YMMV = Your Milieage May Vary.

 

Meaning the experience of someone else may not be exactly the same as yours in any given situation. Here is a list of Abbreviations.
