Re: Take the myFICO Fitness Challenge for 2013!

FAKO is a score that is just made up by whoever wants to sell a score and does not affect you as lenders don't use these .

FICO scores ARE used by lenders and are from fair issac corporation (myfico) . That are calculated differently.  These are the most typical scores used by the majority of lenders.

Re: Take the myFICO Fitness Challenge for 2013!

I have been lurking for the past six months gathering the great information on this site which is the reason why my scores haven risen so much since October.  I would like to contribute to this site and set a goal of 750 by the end of the year. gogogo.

Re: Take the myFICO Fitness Challenge for 2013!

I started visiting this site about a month ago and I learn something new every day.  My goal is to rehab my student loans which are the only negatives I have with the exception of a few old medical bills that I have sent PFD letters for.  Would really like to buy a house during the1st quarter of next year.

HELENofTROY -

Signature line setting is under "my settings" then "personal profile" tab, then down three lines you will see "signature" just paste the html tag there.  Best of luck!

Re: Take the myFICO Fitness Challenge for 2013!

Hi,

 

I'm new to the myFICO forums and figured this would be a good way to grow.

A bit about me:

1) 22, college student

2) montly expenses never exceed $300, I never use more than 20% utilization

3) 1 CC (BofA CashRewards - $900 limit) from 6.5 months ago = first and so far only card

 

Goals:

1) Increase credit limit for the CashRewards card - what is a good first increase amount? second? third?

2) Open a Cap1 Cash Rewards or Chase Freedom or other rewards card

 

Good luck to everyone!


Starting Score: Estimate: 600
Current Score: EQ: 717 / TU: ~695-700 / CreditKarma: 733
Goal Score: ~760

I so miss the days when you could get your Experian FICO from this site as well...

Re: Take the myFICO Fitness Challenge for 2013!

One of my goals that I started the year out with was the to pay off 1 credit card...As of April, I paid off all 3....

 

Now I am starting to pay attention to my installment loans since those amounts would be easier to pay off in a full sum. I can definitely pay off 1 and I'm challenging myself to aggressively pay off 2.  I don't really think my score is going to improve that much considering the number of installments I have on my account due to student loans but it is progress nonetheless.

I have been working since November of 2012 to begin correcting years of youthful financial mistakes.  This year I want to increase my FICO score in order to purchase my first home.

Re: Take the myFICO Fitness Challenge for 2013!

I've been slowly paying off a boatload of debt for a while, but recently rocketed into another income bracket and started taking out big chunks of old debt.

 

I started conqering the old debt earlier this year, and I'm now seeing the great results on my score.  Everything is paid off now--just waiting for the last few things to get cleared up!

 

My real goal is to get an the Delta AMEX Platinum Card, given that I travel a lot and book the travel myself.  I've already been Delta Gold (god forbid I travel so much I get Platinum)  The spend I'd have on that is well worth it, it's like I'm losing miles every time I book travel without it!  ><

Last App 05/3/2013 - Off to garden for the rest of the year!
