a 39 point jump...how?!?!?

So I just paid for another score with experian, and low and behold...my score has jumped to 629.  I started looking very closely at the accounts, and I saw almost no difference at all...just a couple acounts that reported one more month of steady payments... but nothing else more significant.  How the heck did this happen?  (Not that I am complaining)

Those couple of accounts probably altered your credit mix...especially if your credit report previously had no or very few accounts reporting as paid as agreed.
