829 FICO

My father-in-law said they pulled his FICO the other day and it was 829. I was floored by this. I thought it was almost impossible to break 800. He said he never carries a balance on any card and has never had a late payment on anything in his life. He also pays off all loans way ahead of schedule.

Current Score: FICO EQ637-TU690-EX704
Wallet: Cap One Rew. $3500, Cap One Plat. $2000, Barclay $3000, Old Navy Visa $2500, HSBC $1500, Credit One $1800, BoA $3000, Chase Freedom $1500, Wal-Mart Discover $2000, Amazon $3100, Lowes $2000, Kay's $7000

Re: 829 FICO

I just had my last baddie fall off a day ago and my score is now 810 and 804 on 2 of them. So, breaking 800 can definitely be done. :smileywink:

Re: 829 FICO

My baddies are all 3 or more years old, but they still seem to be holding me down. That and my utilization being 45%.

Re: 829 FICO

It gripes me how when they list things that could improve my score one of them is my length of credit history. Then they say that the average person with a really high score has a credit history that is longer than I have been an adult. So in other words it sounds like I am getting knocked down simply because I am in my 30s.

Current Score: FICO EQ637-TU690-EX704
Wallet: Cap One Rew. $3500, Cap One Plat. $2000, Barclay $3000, Old Navy Visa $2500, HSBC $1500, Credit One $1800, BoA $3000, Chase Freedom $1500, Wal-Mart Discover $2000, Amazon $3100, Lowes $2000, Kay's $7000

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
