There's really no way to tell when you will get those points back I wish I could give you a time frame but YMMV

Congarts on the new TL reporting

The good news is now that you have a new TL your file will look even better to help get those points back

I will be gardening until a better offer/bonus comes along

Thank you! I just joined a credit Union as well I did a secured credit card and a secured loan with them I swear I'm done till July 2014 I hope lol. I just wanted to make sure when my scores get high enough for chase freedom or discover it they can't say I didn't have enough accounts. I will have 4 credit cards on eq and tu, 3 cards for ex, 1 secured loan and 2 student loan accounts however one of which has like 9 90+ day lates.

Perfect time to garden and work on the lates with GW's while your scores rebound for those new cards you want.

Chase normally pulls EX but sometimes EQ if borderline resulting in double pulls

Discover pulled EQ from my app in June but has also been known to pull TU

With all those accounts reporting positive history those points will come back fairly quick IMHO

Good willing those lates is near impossible with Sallie Mae lol but Citibank who had the loan first actually screwed up and tried to charge me for when I was in deferment. So that account looks good now its just Sallie Mae. Sallie Mae consumer advocate sent me a letter saying they don't do goodwill however, the letter did say that they are only required to report to at least one credit agencie so now I am asking if they can remove the account from two of them so they are still within federal requirements. I know it won't happen its worth a shot though.
