760+ all 3 CRAs.
If we never set higher goals we would never get as far.

Here are a couple of High Achiever credit files. Interesting, it's my credit history length, average-age of accounts and inqs that have set me back quite a bit with EX. With the first two, there's not much I can do.
 
FICO Scores:
 
EQ: 777
EX:  734
TU:  792
 
EQ Report (777):
overall revolving utilization is 9% (< 10%)
credit history length 28.5 years
average-age of accounts is 6 years
0 inqs
no lates and no other derogs
 
14 total trade lines
 
9 open trade lines:
1 unsecured loan 10K/bal 6.8K
1 BoA unsecured LOC 26.5K CL/ bal 5211
Amex Blue 20K/bal 0
Amex Plat
Chase Visa 19.3K/bal 1871
Discover Motiva 10K (suppose to be 50K)/bal 0
FIA Fidelity Visa 25K/bal 2521
First Hawaiian Bank Visa 10K/bal 0
Macy's Gold 2.7K/bal 0
 
5 closed trade lines
1 auto loan paid and closed; never late
1 unsecured loan paid and closed; never late
Amex Gold AU account $0 bal; never late
Amex Gold account (dupe account); never late
CITI Dividends MC $0 bal; never late
 
EX Report (734):
overall revolving utilization is 9% (< 10%)
credit history length is 14.5 years
average-age of accounts < 3 years
3 inqs
no lates and no other derogs
 
13 total trade lines
 
9 open trade lines:
1 unsecured loan 10K/bal 6.8K
1 BoA unsecured LOC 26.5K CL/ bal 5211
Amex Blue 20K/bal 0
Amex Plat
Chase Visa 19.3K/bal 1871
Discover Motiva 10K (suppose to be 50K)/bal 0
FIA Fidelity Visa 25K/bal 2521
First Hawaiian Bank Visa 10K/bal 0
Macy's Gold 2.7K/bal 0
 
4 closed trade lines
1 auto loan paid and closed; never late
1 unsecured loan paid and closed; never late
Amex Gold account (dupe account); never late
CITI Dividends MC $0 bal; never late
 
TU Report (792):
overall revolving utilization is 9% (< 10%)
credit history length 28.5 years
average-age of accounts is 6 years
0 inqs
no lates and no other derogs
 
14 total trade lines
 
9 open trade lines:
1 unsecured loan 10K/bal 6.8K
1 BoA unsecured LOC 26.5K CL/ bal 5211
Amex Blue 20K/bal 0
Amex Plat
Chase Visa 19.3K/bal 1871
Discover Motiva 10K (suppose to be 50K)/bal 0
FIA Fidelity Visa 25K/bal 2134
First Hawaiian Bank Visa 10K/bal 0
Macy's Gold 2.7K/bal 0
 
5 closed trade lines
1 auto loan paid and closed; never late
1 unsecured loan paid and closed; never late
Amex Gold AU account $0 bal; never late
Amex Gold account (dupe account); never late
CITI Dividends MC $0 bal; never late
 
The differences in scores is big and here is why:
 
- EX has a credit history length of 14.5 years comapred to EQ and TU which is 28 years 5 months
  (estimated loss in points is 10-15)
 
- EX average-age of accounts is < 3 years compared to EQ and TU which is 6 years 
  (estimated loss in points is 15+)
 
- EX has 3 inqs compared with EQ and TU which have 0 inqs
  ( estimated loss in points is 15-20)
 
I think these differences account for at least 40-55 points.

You have wonderful balance in your trade lines and varied card issuers.  When the Discover Motiva card starts reporting as a 50K credit line, you must let us know how it reports (i.e., revolving, installment, etc.) and is considered in utilization calculations.

Just joined this group yesterday....
 
TU - 700
EQ - 720
EX  - 782!! 
 
The difference is that EX dropped off the last baddie on my CR a couple months earlier than the other two will.  Wasnt officially supposed to drop until June.  I posted on this over on FICO SCORING forum also. 
 
With a little luck I might actually crack 800 soon.  Payments that will post this month will click me below the 20% utils mark and my understanding is I ll get a bump from that.

psychic: I am curious as to why would the Motiva report as "installment".  Is there something special about the 50K level?

fused: it seems that your credit profile is better than mine in every respect, yet your scores are lower.  I wonder why.
 
Here is my post showing my Equifax file and score:

Each CRA is different.  I have a $33,300 revolving CL that is not included my TransUnion (and I suspect) Experian utilization calculations.  However, this CL is included in my Equifax utilization calculations.  We've always been a little "fuzzy" about these cut-off points.  I'm just trying to determine each CRA's behavior when it comes to high credit lines.
