Re: Advice on improving my score.

Half of my cards were closed in the consolidation through the credit union - CAP1 stayed open - My score for TRU is was a 682 and Equifax 666 prior to the consolidation loan. In less than a week my score has gone from 666 EQ to 721 and My TRU from 682 to 734. Just to see what would happen I applied for a new card and I got a 3K limit with cap1 and a new discover card (which I always was denied for previosly) I know I shouldnt have applied but I did it for the credit education purpose, however I will keep the Cap 1 I just wont activate the Discover. I just wanted to make a UPDATE post since this may have been helpful to somebody that is reading this. Ill be sure to check back in to this post maybe 6 months from now. I must say that this credit union totally helped me and I am so greatful.
