Re: myFICO Fitness Challenge 2012 Wrap Up: How Did You Do?

2012 starting score:  547 / ending score:  593 


Increase of 46 pts in the end, but LOTS of fluctuations in between and I added 8 new accounts.  If I hadn't done the latter, I'm sure it would be much higher. Oh and paying down some of this 60% util would help too lol.


2014 Starting-618, current TU621 (TU 10/20) / Ending Goal score: 720 / 30 Positive TLs / 1 Negative: Unpaid $312 med CA placed 2010 / reported Install Bal/Lim: 25027/36512 | reported Revolving Bal/Lim: 11169/27232=41%util

I was aiming for the sky when I took the challenge, aiming for 750. When I joined, I had little credit history (a 5 month old Capital One Journey) and didn't know my score.  I got a Wally card in March and my score was 710,  I got as high as 742 back in July, but honestly haven't been paying much attention to utilization, just making sure I pay in full every month.  I finally met my goal this month though, with a 755 credit score!


I was a bit worried because I missed some payments when I was out of power for a week during Hurricane Sandy, but the banks worked with me, reversed the fees and now as soon as I get a bill in my e-bills, I set it as an automatic payment with the bill due date as the execution date.


For 2013, I'm hoping to get a score of 800, build up my savings and put a downpayment on a house.  We'll see how that goes.
