Score Watch Alerts - Duplicates
[ Edited ]

Every time I get a Score Watch account balance increase alert, it's posted twice. Every entry is a duplicate. Why is that?

 

It doesn't matter which account it is.

 

I typically have a zero balance on all my cards. When I do let a small balance show on a card, I get two identical Score Watch alerts.

Starting Score: EQ 607 TU 693
Current Score: EX myFICO 750 - EQ myFICO 780 - TU08 (Walmart and Discover) 732 - TU myFICO 728
Goal Score: 800+ across the board!

Re: Score Watch Alerts - Duplicates

When a balance goes from 0 to a higher amount, you'll typically get an alert for $ amount increase, and balance percentage increase. Check the scorewatch settings, you should see the two settings. I feel it's a bit redundant, but there's nothing wrong with the alerts.

2009-10 - C/Os
2011 - Debts paid, no open credit
2012 - Rebuilding started, secured cards opened, SL rehabbed - EQ myFICO 636
2014 - 10k Discover, 3.5k Freedom, AmEx Green, SL, Auto Loan - EQ myFICO 695

Thank you! That makes perfect sense!

 

I've checked my settings, and you're absolutely right. I turned off the 5% alert and kept the $1 alert.
