Question re: CR

Hello,
 
Just a question.. I have one or two accounts that are scheduled to drop off this year.  How long would it take for my credit report to reflect this change..?  I am contemplating when I should pull another credit report and score?  And trying to save money.. Would I even need to pull these if I have the Score Alert and CreditKeeper which allow me to keep track of my score and pull FAKO's?  My FAKO's are fairly accurate...
 
One additional question.  I have a few 30 day and 60 day lates on loans and a previous collection that are now a year old.  They are not willing to do a goodwill or PFD.. When will these have less of an effect on my credit?? Thanks!!

Re: Question re: CR

The score change will happen the day they drop off - when a 6.8 year old collection dropped off DWs, we goy a scorewatch email within days (and a 50 point increase  Smiley Very Happy).

While some other posters have said they did not see a jump after a year of perfect payments- 
 
I did see a significant change-
 
These will have less of an impact as time goes by-

4 years of perfect payments sent my score soaring from 640 to 670  Smiley Very Happy
 
Then I started getting serious.

That's because you were already approaching perfection, and you had used up all your points! Slackers like me have lots of potential still out there. Smiley Tongue
