There are a couple of aging factors that change when the calendar changes. Whether or not those things would cause a scoring difference, who knows. If you are cool waiting a few more days for the 1st, you won't have to wonder if you should have.
In the meantime if you haven't done so already, why not sign up at creditscorecard.com and grab your EX FICO 08 score for free. That score will likely match 1 of the 3 you'll be getting come the 1st of the month. If it doesn't, it means that holding off until the 1st was beneficial, as something did change as a result of the calendar changing.
I want to order my 3b score from my fico but don't know if I should do it now or wait a few days till the 1st of the month? Or does it even matter?
It depends on the types of accounts you have, and when the lenders report. In my case, the most useful time of the month for the report is towards the early middle of the month.
@ScoreJunkieI've read too many threads here where folks had trouble cancelling that free trial so it scares me. 😕 I have the credit karma fake scores for me and hubby. I'm just going to follow your advice and be patient. 😁
You are confusing creditscorecard.com with creditchecktotal. There is no trial or cancellation with creditscorecard.com. It's simply a service offered for free by Discover, where you'll get your EX FICO 08 score once per month. There is zero liability or risk in signing up. What you're thinking of is creditchecktotal, which is a $1 trial membership for 7 days that if not cancelled can result in a $30/mo membership. Two totally different things here!
