Rebucketing refers to differences in the scoring algorithm based on a consumer's profile. For example, let's consider the number of revolving accounts. Consumers with 1 revolving account get one algorithm applied, 5 revolving accounts get another slightly different algorithm and 10+ revolving accounts get yet another scoring algorithm.


Those with 1 revolving account are lumped together in one scoring bucket, 5 account holders are in another bucket, 10+ account holders in a third bucket.

First off, remember to play nicely!!!!


It does sound like a case of rebucketing.  As I take it you've pretty much got all the negatives off you may have been rebucketed, also some accounts may have fallen off that actually were helping your AAoA.  Then again sometimes there's the gremlin affect cause I have no idea what's going on!
