Re: Take the myFICO Fitness Challenge 2017!

I would like to join the Challenge mid-year as well.  My goals are similar to others:

 

  • Continue to PIF every month.
  • Save every month.
  • Not to apply for any new credit except for commercial mortgages.

 

Thanks,

Driftless

Re: Take the myFICO Fitness Challenge 2017!

It's end of the June already, but I've being reading these post for few months now. I know it's late but I want to join the challenge too and share my experience along the way. I've learned a lot from this forum so far, and I want to thank you for sharing. To be honest felt good about humans on this Earth, when I read some post with great ideas and comments.

Here we go,
I have a student loan with Navient close to 72K with few 90-120 days latest in 2015 and at least 8 collection and 1 pai off chase accountant counting as the oldest account (opened in 2008)

After reading this forum I've sent DV letters to all the CA in CRCC mail. Wrote a sort of GW letter to Navient advocate asking to remove the late payments.

Opened: PenFed CU saving account today,
Pending: NASA, and DCU
Denied: NAVY, UNIFY and Allient

Opened a secured CC with capital one with a $300 deposit and gave me up to $450 limit. Kept the % less than 7 in the 1st statement and keeping to do so.

Took off ERC CA reporting from my TU and waiting for Equinax. BIG THANK TO GOOD PEOPLE HERE FOR THIS INFORN

Future idea: open another secured CC with a CU or discover it.

Re: Take the myFICO Fitness Challenge 2017!

I'm new to the Challenge.  Been following people doing it for almost four years, but finally got into a financial place where I can make it happen and finally get into the right place.

 

No BK, but a lot of bad decisions (between my own and those I've taken on for others).  I'm doing a lot of repair for stupid young decisions.  

 

I'm not young anymore.  I'm a father and a husband, and I can't let my own youthful decisions disrupt or affect my family's growth.  I want to be the best I can be for them, so I need to improve financially.

 

Any steps in the right direction would help greatly.  Right now, I've got a Discover it Secured Card, a First Premier Credit Card, and a Credit One card.  Planning on leaving it at that and gardening for a bit here, but I've got a lot of work to do to keep everything proper and pat with my cards.

Starting Score: EQ 555, TU 570, EX 545 - 7/21
Current Score: EQ 555, TU 570, EX 545 - 7/21
Goal Score: ALL 640 by 1/1/18

I plan on it eventually...but I also just got the cards. Wouldn't make sense to kill my AAoA like that...

Re: Take the myFICO Fitness Challenge 2017!

I recommend mentioning you have those cards and are afraid to close them in the fico-scoring sub-forum. Many others more knowledgeable than I will be able to assist you on the best way to do it.

Re: Take the myFICO Fitness Challenge 2017!

I'm a little late to the party, but I'm in!  I just paid off all of my debt except the mortgage and now it's time to build my credit score back up!  It's been a long year, but things are looking up!
