Hey myFico, is it an increase or decrease?

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?

Re: Hey myFico, is it an increase or decrease?

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.

High Bal Jan 2009 $116k on $146k limits 80% Util.

April 2018 $18k on $344k 5% util EQ 806 TU 810 EX 812

Re: Hey myFico, is it an increase or decrease?

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.
