Credit Score Up 73 Points in 1 Month?

Ok...I closed my Credit One account last month but still have access to my account data. Checked today just to see if on-line account had been closed yet and it hadn't. What I was most suprised by was my credit score. My May 2013 score was at 680 and my June 2013 score is at 753. From what I've read this score is a FICO score I'm just not sure which one. Trust me I'm not complaining just confused.

In last month the following has occurred:

Closed Credit One account
Closed Target Account
Utilization was at 5% now at 1%
4 App's all approved FNBO AMEX, 2 Chase CC's and an AMEX PRG(even though I don't think the AMEX Inq has hit CR's yet)

No bads fell off because I didn't have any. Any thoughts?

From what I've read here the Credit One FICO is Experian. Maybe I reached an AAoA but don't think that's it either. My relovers average is something like 1.3 years.

Even FICO knows Credit One is bad, thus the increased!

Sure wish I had another resource for Experian FICO to verify accuracy. Credit Sesame says I'm at 742.

I don't think the Credit One score is a true FICO score. My wife has a Credit One card and I can't find where it claims to be a FICO. Just says credit score.

CapOne QuicksilverOne $500/VS $700/Express $500/Walmart $2000/Old Navy $600/SC Telco Visa $1K/HH Gregg $1500/Target REDcard $200
