Re: improving Credit score

Depends on what else is on your CR, but you could see a bump due to the decrease in util.

July 2013 score: EQ FICO 819, TU08 778, EX "806 lender pull 07/26/2013

Maybe a stupid question but isn't this too old to still be reporting?

Depends on the negative, tax liens or renewed judgements for example but yes most are there for 7-7.5 years give or take.  If the negative is one of those which is supposed to come off after the usual period, disputing as obsolete is recommended.  

 

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 673, EQ 8 707, TU 720, EX 702* (09/02/14, EX older)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ '04 (01/01/15)

You should see an improvement when the CC's report the new balances to the CRA's. This will usually take place a few days to a week after the statement is cut.

 

Regarding the negative from 2003, when did you close that account? If it was a CC it should disappear ten years after closing.
