Re: DCU FICO is up!

At 726, +1 from last month


Been stuck in the 725(min)-731(max) range ever since I signed up in January XD even with an AAoA of 2 years finally on my files, this score simply does not want to jump! XD


The 731 was a result of 2 out of 6 cards reporting a 1% balance...currently, two accounts are reporting $0. Waiting for everything to report and/or statement cut!

Amex closed my statement later this month than ever before, so even with the very late DCU pull, my 2.968/3000 Amex from last month is still posted instead of the $16.82 this month.  Still flatlined at 648, c'est la vie Smiley Happy.


I read somewhere on this forum that util is rounded up, so in both those cases it's still 1%. Even if util is calculated so very precisely, the difference between those two are so minimal, I don't think you would really see a difference... 

I have a old $30,000CL Chase card that was never removed from my CR and therefore I can't use it as it was from an old company I worked for but it counts as part of my Credit limit and so I have a hard time hitting my 1% utilization rate and as it is rounded up you actually do need 1/5 of a percent to get it.  I know because I keep bouncing between less than 1/5% and right above 1/5% and once it hits 1/5% then it rounds up.  This is how it works on my reports.

Haha, that's unfortunate about your credit line, but good info! Good to know.
