However, to date, Lending Club still has yet to report and they didn't hit me up with an inquiry (but did a soft the day I applied). Time will tell. The first due date is at the end of August. I

Edited to delete my Lending Club questions which sort of hijacked this post!  I read other forum posts about LC  and went on line for more info.  Sorry for the interruption!

UPDATE...

 

I'm in the home stretch now with 3 TLs (well, really 2, because one is Macys with no CL listed) left to update. For the past many days I have updated the first post showing the changes to util in relation to changes to score. The three remaining cards are CapOne 822/1000 and that should update starting on Tuesday, 1460/1500 for Juniper and that should update starting the 4th. Finally Macys has a $600 balance and that should update on the 5th, but isn't factored into util. As of today, my util is less than 1% once everything reports with balances only on Amex and $25 on Discover.

 

As you can see, the scores went up by a fair amount. Despite TU dropping 75% to date, the increase was a lot less than I thought it would at 65 points. Now I'm not complaining any, but I thought the change would be more. Conversely, EQ went above and beyond. 111 points for 72% less in util is a lot more than I thought it would be.

 

I'll post a final update later this week.


Any update, Ilecs? I can't stand the suspense.:smileyhappy:

Re: Score impact of going from 89% util to <10%

Alas, this morning EQ updated, or rather CapOne updated on EQ. With a zero balance, EQ went to 774. It shows 9% util and still waiting on Junny. Once updated util goes to under 1%. I'll update the first post later as I am on vacation and using an iphone is a challenge. Btw for entertainment purposes, eq plus is at 698.

"Alas"? Heck, any time EQ updates anything at all is an occasion for celebration! :smileyvery-happy:

 

Grats on the lovely 774, and enjoy your vacation.

Way to go!  A great lesson in keeping amounts owed in installment rather than revolving territory.  I'm amazed at the score impact.

Finished EQ today! TU should update by tomorrow and I'll give a play-by-play analysis tomorrow evening, assuming Junny does update on TU by then.

Isn't this costing you a lot of money checking your scores so often? Although if my score was going up so fast I would be checking it too!  Congrats!


Starting Score: TU 630... EQ 630....EX FAKO 637
Current Score: TU 736... EQ 770....EX FACO 779
Goal Score: 760

The key to charging these FICO reports is to take your CC bill and toss it. They way you'll never know the damage. :smileywink:

 

Joking aside, I pay the same price as everyone else. I spend $10.95/EQ report (discount due to being a SW subscriber) and pay $11 and change for TU after using a discount code (google is a great source. So is Twitter (hint)).

 

Plus, this will never happen again. I pray my util will never hit 80%+ again. Plus, I'll know cause and relationship per points because I already have a baseline to draw from.
