Congrats....I've been trying to find someone to add me to one of their cards to increase my score, but can't find anyone. The people I ask refused. I guess they're scared or something. What is the credit limit and untilization of the card you were added to? Also what do you used to monitor your score for all three CRA?


great question.  i asked the same thing yesterday and from what i understand there isn't a product that exists to satisfy this question. Smiley Sad
 
i was told that most people monitor their report via TU's TrueCredit and update their score upon a significant change in that CR.
 
anybody.....correct me plz if i'm wrong on this......

There isn't any "one" product to monitor all 3 scores.  What you mentioned about Tru Cred...yes, many here use that (myself included) & when you see significant changes posting in your balances & such...come here to myfico & pull a new score. (with the googled myficodiscount of course)
 
 
*Sigh...I wish my scores would jump more than 4 points at a time.  It's so disheartening....Smiley Sad

Re: 45 point Increase in less than a month!!!

I did not use a service to add to a card as joint user.  My mom added me.  She knew the circumstances of my past credit problems so she felt ok about adding me as a joint user.  Unless it is a family member, I don't recommend this method.  It's a great way to kill a friendship if life throws a serious curve ball because it's not just your credit that suffers when you are a joint user. 
 
My current utilization for revolving accounts is 3%.  Currently my scores are TU-664 EQ-657 EX 663.  I use SP even though I don't think it is working correctly.  This service shows collections on my TU report that are not on the TU report that they sent to me this week.  I'm not sure what's going on with this service lately. 
 
I have 1 mortgage-never late 4.5 yrs, 1- car loan, never late 6 mos. and 1 CC-never late 13 years.  All the baddies that could be removed from my report have been removed and I don't suspect anything but time is going to help my score now Smiley Sad

Good going!    IMO  you should have at least 3 CC  reporting.  It doesn't mean that you have to use them except to keep them current.  I use all my extra CC  once every 6 months for something that I would use cash for....I then PIF when they report & wait another 6 months.
 
Your scores are not bad but I do think if you had 2 more it would help your scores.(IMO)
 
CC count about 30% of your scores where mortg.and auto only count 10%
 
If you want new CC  go to the credit card thread here & ask what people think are best to apply for with your scores.
 
They will also be able to tell you which CRA is pulled.

I thought that being added as an AU to a credit card would no longer boost your FICO score?

I understand that in Fico 2008, AU's will not benefit from being added.  An AU and joint account holder are not viewed the same.  You can be removed as an AU.  On joint accounts, you can't.  Or at least on the account I was put on, Discover Card, you have to sign an agreement stating that you cannot be removed.

Hi Happy,

What is it about FICO that you need understanding? Please elaborate, because FICO is a huge complicated Animal. The more we know about your problems or concerns the better we can assist you.
