Read my lips...bank (major) credit cards carry more weight than store cards not issued by banks.
Serious question - does a Credit Union CC carry as much weight as a major bank CC?Just out of interest

Once the loan is paid and the account closes then it should report for up to 10 years. Open and closed accounts are scored the same, so long as this loan reports a $0 balance and no derogs (late payments) then yes it will have a positive impact on your scores.
So if I have a car loan, how long will that stay on my report after it's paid off? And even if it's paid off will it still help my score as it did when it was open while its still on my report?
