I am currently trying to raise my credit scores I am carrying a pretty high balance on a Nordstrom retail card (hopefully a visa sig by oct 2019) but jsut paid my Credit One credit card to $0 ($750 limit) and Balance of $20g with J Crew Commenity. These are the only cards I have open as well as a auto loan.
Pay down Nordstrom and remove as many lates I can thru GW letters. I'm trying to get an idea of what I should tackle first besides paying down balances. Obviously, PFD is best in most scenarios but I have a few store cards, mostly through Synchrony bank that are now closed but not sent to collections, but they did send two accounts to Midland Credit Management.
MCM says they will delete after 2 years once paid in full or settled, has anyone had success with derogs from them being deleted sooner, I don't want to wait that long.
Has anyone had success reopening cards from the following issuers:
and Synchrony Bank (Amazon, Walmart, TJ Maxx, Gap, Old Navy)
My goal is to either PFD or have cards reopened to help with age and utilization, the oldest account is from 2015.
The MCM accounts are about 1 year old
