Re: Would a drop from 91% to 68% utilization on one card sign...

I am still waiting it has been approx 3 weeks how long did it take you to see the point increase? Did they post on all bureaus around the same time or did one take longer than the other?

Try and get it lower.. IMO under 50% and again under 30% gets you the most points.

I have seen the best jump when 2 hit simultaneously. I got a 31 point boost on EX when two hit that I took from max to under 30%. Still depends also on overall util as well. More to come...
 
Don't be bummed the more you pay down and the more they age the better your increases.
