FICO score estimates after paying off CC's? What kind of jumps did you get?
Hey everyone, happy new years eve!
I used to have a fico score of about 750-760 for both Equifax and Transunion, but after using a lot of my personal cards for business use (I know, dumb) I've racked up a lot of debt but now I'm paying it off for the most part (I already opened a few new business cards and I've gotten everything in order) BUT I'm focused on my scores now.
I just made these payments as of a few days ago, and today:
Discover - $12,000 owed / $13700 limit - Paid to $0 Chase: $4700 owed / $20,000 limit - paid to $0 Citi card 1: $1486 owed / $14000 limit - paid to $0 Bank of America - $2900 owed / $5000 limit - paid to $0
I have about 10 cards total, but the remaining cards have 0 balances so I'm not including them. I just paid all of those cards after reporting with a balance for over a year.

You got it down from 41% utl to 13% utl so you should get a big jump. We won't know how much but I wont be suprised if you'll get up to at least 720ish. I believe you'll get the biggest jump if you get it down to 9% utl.
Starting Score: 2/22/12: EQ 530, TU 553, EX 528(lender). 12/4/12 (rebuilding starts)= EQ 599. Current Score: 1/4/16: EQ 743, TU FICO 724, EX 737. Goal Score: 750 all across.
