Is our friend Federalist still updating this thread? Looks like there is new information about Citi, BOA, Synchrony, and Comenity.
I'll be back soon to update. Had a situation. Be back soon, though.
Just wanted to add for information purposes:
Chase will update your balance mid-cycle anytime you request it, as long as it is different than what appears on your report.
I talked to a Chase supervisor yesterday, and she confirmed this. They'll update anytime upon request. This would be helpful to those who haven't paid to zero but have paid to a balance that's more "flattering." It would also be helpful to someone who's gotten into a position where all cards are reporting zero.
Question on the Lowes card. I was slightly confused after reading about Lowes.
I was planning on using it to buy appliances for my new home a couple weeks before closing. I need a refrigerator, washer and dryer. As for it doesn't come with those. The statement cuts on the 21st of each month. I was going to wait until after the statement cut. Its had a 0 dollar balance on it for about a year now.
If I purchase the appliance on say, April 25th, is the increase in balance going to reflect on my credit reports right away? I close on May 9th and absolutely cannot have any more debt go on my credit report.
I called Discover for something else the other day and asked them to update the $0 balance but they didn't seem to know how to do it. They just told me they update the balance every month.
Nope Capital one still doesn't as of today
Question, do you still need a rapid rescore if the company's force report for you?
My Amazon store card updated on the date of my due date about a week before the statement cuts. I wouldn't consider that mid-cycle.
9/21- Statement cut $6 bal
9/24- Paid bal to $0
9/25- Update $0 bal to CSR
10/3-10/8- Charged $69
10/13- Due date $0 due
10/13- Updated $69 bal to CSR
10/15- Paid bal to $0
10/21- Satement will cut
I called and tried to get Citi to report - no dice. They said it just has to happen at the statement date - totally bummed because I paid to zero and it won't update until the 24th and I need the score bump! (Paid off $10K of Util just to get it!)
