SW - received a timely update :-)

[ Edited ]

I figured with all the complaints about time lag or no updates etc I'd post what just happened  on my reports.

 

Yesterday morning I got an alert from EQ that an account had changed (balance lowered on student loan).

 

About 4 hours later I got a SW alert for that change.

 

So YAY for a same-day alert!

 

And as a side note,  TransUnion (also have monitoring thru) sent me an alert today that they detected a change on EQ.  So they were only a 1 day lag!

Re: SW - received a timely update :-)

good to know, thanks! I just recieved a score alert with a 24 pt increase just now! but I haven't had any credit alerts yet so I'm not sure what caused it. I'm hoping it was the credit card balances paid off!
