1 year mark......Just curious

OK just kinda curious about this one but did anyone here see in score increase after

Their cards hit the one year mark with perfect payment history?

My cap 1 will be a year old next month and I was just wondering if I would see any change

 

Thanks :smileyhappy:

Re: 1 year mark......Just curious

At the very least you'll gain a couple of points from the inquiry that Cap1 hit you with on all 3 bureaus.  Aging has more to do with your AAoA, though I believe you get hit for a new account up front.

Re: 1 year mark......Just curious

I'm currently awaiting my cap one to hit the one year mark in December. Also awaiting two inquires (of 8 total) to fall off by end of year. If it's of any interest I will update this thread when that all happens.

IME, yes.....provided I don't have anything newer. I've seen gains of 10-20 as the youngest hit a year. If I had newer accts, the gains would be small, if any.
