Myfico credit card simulator

Is the MyFico credit simulator on myfico.com pretty accurate?  Right now my only credit card balance is $9,275.  I have several other cards but my Navy Federal card is the only one carrying a balance.  It's saying that if I pay down by $200 then my Eq score will go up 15 points.  Does that sound right?  I would love it but it just seems unreal.

No. Every profile is different and therefore every profile will respond differently to changes. Don’t put any faith in simulators.

Re: Myfico credit card simulator

Depending on your limit, paying $200 might drop you through a scoring threshold, which easily COULD gain you those points, but I would chalk that up to coincidence.

Re: Myfico credit card simulator

Nope, no thresholds crossed. You’d go from about 93% to 91%. The maxed out threshold is 88.9%. If I were you I’d pay your card down as far as possible and soon. At the least get below 87%, farther if possible. You don’t want to carry balances at that percentage for long.

Yes, certainly getting below 90 percent is ideal. But try to pay more if you can
