I found that you can't go by what they name it --you just have to see its effect on your scores, as did MV.


I looked at my AMEX creditsecure report - they have a line that is the balance of revolving credit.  This is what tipped me off - the level on EX was 16 times the level on EQ or TU

On credit secure it has my HELOC showing in the revolving balance on all 3. 
 
On FICO - only EX shows it a LOC but is not calculated in scoring-

OK, I couldn't stand it any more, and I pulled EX --no change, other than a one-point drop, because suddenly Discover has reported twice to all the bureaus, the second time with a balance, grr.

But the 27% on the HELOC didn't seem to do a thing to my score.

MV, you might want to turn that Voice lose again on the ladies at the CU, and get your CL raised. In my case, $50K has it reporting as installment, with no effect on revolving util and scores.

I got my APR reduced on my HELOC today-
I was sooooo cool to get a WOW from my credit union.

Yep, my rate went down, too. I don't even remember hearing that they dropped the prime again. (The 27% is the util on the HELOC, not the APR, yikes.)
