CS not moving. What gives?

I have managed to get my score up to a 652 but hasn't budged in months! I use my 2 credit cards and pay them completely off every month. My bills are all on time what else can I do?

Re: CS not moving. What gives?

Are both cards reporting a $0 balance on your report?

If yes

Try to leave a small balance on 1 card between 1% - 9%.

I am in a similar situation.  I filed BK eight years ago, and I started monitoring my score two years ago.  My EQ is stuck at 714 and TU went from 707 to 711 during that two year period.  During these last two years I have paid back $50,000 in student loans and my scores won't budge.

The higher your score the harder it is for bumps.  Once the BK is removed it will move up.
