Quick check in for July. Not a whole lot to report.
Last month, I stepped out of the garden to open a Southwest card with my biggest limit yet. It just got a lot of love on a work trip to Vegas this week. After purchasing some flights and booking hotels for some upcoming trips, I easily reached my $3K spend and received my 50K points within days. After the new account reported, I lost a couple points with EX and EQ but regained them at some point later in the month, but GAINED 17 points with TU -- go figure.
Feeling very good about my profile, and continue to be excited to watch my scores grow as my accounts age and report positively!
Current scores: EX 720 (0) TU 737 (+17) EQ 708 (+0)

July is off to a very positive start!
I completed a rehab agreement to remove my only two lates on a student loan last month and have been waiting for the new scores to report.. Today was my lucky day!
June scores - EQ 653 TU 634 EX 675
July scores - EQ 687 TU 694 EX 675
SO. EXCITED. Just last month I posted in the challenge thread that I did not think I could hit my 2015 goal to get 700 across the board, and here I am now, back on the hype train. I also got a couple of CLIs which are going to drive down my util.
I'm considering a brief hiatus from the garden if I hit my goal in September, just to refinance my auto loan. I was going to wait a full year, but my scores are starting to look promising enough where I believe I can ditch this 7% interest rate at the 6 month mark and start paying down the principal faster.

Wonder what happened to my signature. All of the cards are gone.
Since you post count is still relatively low, you might not be able to insert HTML in your signature yet. Just keep posting and you should be able to make your own signature with card images soon

Throwing my name in the Fitness Challenge! My scores starting in June of 2015 were TU 649, EX 632, and EQ 603 mostly due to very hight credit card utilization, inquiries, and new accounts. In the month of June I paid off $3600 in credit card debt and recieved my first $5k card. All accounts haven't updated to show a 0 balance and the new card does not reflect either but I still was able to earn a 13-18 point jump across the board. I have one credit card left to pay off and that is Amazon which shows a balance of $813 and I have a PIF scheduled for July 10th! Goal for this month is another 20 points across the board when all accounts finally update! Gardening until 01/16!!!

goodcreditgirl1, it's a contract between you and a student loan servicer that allows you to remove a defaulted status or remove late payments, so long as you make 9 consecutive payments on time. Let's you "rehabilitate" a negative status on a student loan. Hope this helps!

Not much to report-still trying to pay down cards but not showing much result. My inquiries friquiries from last summer's hail disaster are dropping off so my EQ score has come up but TU is the same and EX is down. But after 6 months of dropping my UTL by 30% plus I'm still in the 600s.
