Re: Finally broke 800!

First off, congrats on breaking the 800 barrier!

 

Question though:  On the graph you posted showing your score, what is the time frame of each point on the graph on the x-axis?  It looks like your score went up around 20 points or so leading up to your recent 804 point.  I'm curious if those are months, meaning your score went up ~20 points each of the last 2 months, or if maybe it's years and it was a much more gradual climb?

Thanks everyone! Smiley Happy

@BrutalBodyShots: yep those are months and increases of about 25 pts reflecting me paying down the debt I've had from about 13k down to about 2k (current util is about 2%). And multiple cards showing balances since I'm not going for max score atm so I let everything report before paying.

Re: Finally broke 800!

Nice job paying down that debt/utilization.  Great example of how one can scoop up 50 points or so from paying down some moderate debt!

Congratulations! That took a lot of time and effort, but you got there!

Oh, well, I'm done for 2020 (unless I get an insane offer)...
