I often get myFico alerts that say...'alert, your balance has changed'.
But it never says your overall balance has increased or decreased. Why can't it distinguish between numerical values going up or going down, or increasing or decreasing, or gaining or losing?....feel me?
You are talking TU only, right? EQ and EX have directional text on all their alerts. TU is listing "All Bankcards" only.
That "Balance Change" on TU gathers several days and several card reports, some of which could have gone up, some of which could have gone down.
When I was paying for my MyFico alerts, I would receive the following:
TU balance increase/decrease for Retail Trade cc, Personal Finance cc and Bankcards
Experian balance increase/decrease and percentage increase/decrease
Equifax balance increase/decrease
On my Experian I would get double alerts.....same date, same account, same information, same points, etc.
