Re: Take the FICO Fitness Challenge for 2011!

1.  My goal scores for 2011 is to be at 700 across the board

2.  Current scores are TU: 643, EQ: 650 and EX: 641 (PSECU)

3.  Plans include paying down balances, and controlling my utilization. Never miss a payment and fight off the two remaining collections I have. Staying away from new accounts until December 2011. My plan is to be at least 700 before I apply again. I love this forum!

TU: 603 – EQ: 569 – EX: N/A – May 2010

Re: Take the FICO Fitness Challenge for 2011!

Hi All!

 

1.  Your FICO score goal for 2011: 700 Club+!!

2.  Your current FICO score(s): EQ-608; TU-654

3.  The steps you plan to take to achieve your goal: 2010 was a year of discovery for me when it comes to FICO and I am  going to build on the hard work that we did in 2010! (Already increased my score over 100 point in 7 months). So this year I will continue to maintain 0-8% balance on my credit card (only have one of those). Paid off any remaining collections (I still have some out there, but I am better) I hope to get in the 700 club, so I can refinance my mortgage through the FHA streamline process.


Starting Score: 507 (8/2010)
Current Score: 635 (EQ-7/2011)
Current Score: 683 (TU-7/2011)Goal Score: 715

Welcome to the forums!

I'd suggest reading the following:

Common Abbreviations

What Steps Do I Take - great for learning the repair process.

and Example letters - PFDs, GWs, DVs, etc.

1.  Goal for 2011 is 760 at all 3.

2.  Current:  TU: 699 EQ: 651 EX: 705

3.  Goals for this year; pay down $40K of credit card debt to $10K.

4.  Cease using credit cards for everyday expenses.

5.  Stop using credit cards for company travel and mixing these expenses on plastic.

6.  Use the new Amex Premier Rewards Gold card I'm getting for everything since it must be paid off monthly.

7.  And stick to the monthly budget!

Re: Take the FICO Fitness Challenge for 2011!

current about 680 (FICO-EQ)

target: 730 (FICO-EQ)

 

no inquiries after unsecuring my bofa in march, I cant do much to improve my scores, it has to happen at its own. I am assuming as my AAoA doubles towards the end of 2011 (started in Jan 2010) and I keep paying bills on time with no new inquiries, my FICO should increase.

Re: Take the FICO Fitness Challenge for 2011!

Goal for Dec. 2011: 750+

Current Experian and TU Score: 622

 

Action Plan:

 

Pay off all credit cards

Make payments on-time, not at the last minute

Pay twice than the minimum due

Leave new credit card offers alone

Put more in my savings (emergency fund and retirement accounts) 

Read one book or magazine a month on personal finance 

Use only 10% of my available credit line when possible

 

Here's to a SLAM DUNK in 2011!

Use as many coupons and discounts that I can when out shopping.



Current 2013 Score: ScoreWatch Transunion: 737, ScoreWatch Equifax: 723, Nordstrom Equifax: 734
Goal Score for January 2014: 750-809 range

Re: Take the FICO Fitness Challenge for 2011!

1.  Your FICO score goal for 2011:

 720+ on all scores

2.  Your current FICO score(s):

EQ: 659 (1/21/11 via SW), TU: 689 (1/21/11 via Quarterly Monitoring), EX:??? 


3.  The steps you plan to take to achieve your goal:

Work on removing collection accounts (1 on EQ, 2 on TU & EX).

Decrease total utilization to <10% by paying down credit cards and asking for CLI's.

Continue to pay on time on all open accounts (haven't missed a payment in over 2 years!).

Possibly become an AU on one of my parents cards to increase AAoA.

Ask questions and look for support on this forum when I run into problems!

 

Good luck, everyone!
