Re: myFICO Fitness Challenge 2012 Wrap Up: How Did You Do?

I had a mixed year.  I'd hoped to break 700, and did so for TU, not for EQ.


My EQ scores have stayed in the low 680s all year.  But I was able to purchase new home, kill off the high fee rebuilder cards (First Premier and CreditOne), and replace my last secured card with 6.2K in two unsecured cards.


I believe inquiries generated to finally get my mortgage and utilization are the reasons I didn't do better in 2012.
