Knockin on 800!

When I first signed up with MyFico in September my fico score was 702.  After reading all the posts and help from Tuscany's posts I am now knocking on 800.  My score is 796!   How did I do it, my first mistake was to think that no debt is good, duh, wrong.  I had a zero balance and a score of 702.  So I charged a little bit and my score keep jumping, then I got some lates off my report and "Bam" more points.I guess you do need a little debt to have a high score.  I am really careful about having my report run for any kind of cc.  I am now looking into buying a used car.   800 would be nice, but at my score, I can enjoy the same privileges as a 800er.

Congrats
The slide from grace is really more like gliding
And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid
