What is a good Average Age of Account ?
When I did the math on all my OPEN credit card/charge cards =
Experian = 1 years 4 months and 21 days
Eequifax : 1 years 3 months and 24 days
Thoughts anyone ?
The milestones are 2 years and 5 years IIRC. When I finally hit 2.5 years, my Experian went up 30 point seemingly overnight.
If you're going for a perfect score, I believe it's over 8 years.
wow, so until I am in my mid 40's i will not reach a perfect score....if there still is a credit rating system... lol
The sooner you stop applying for credit, the sooner you'll get there.
No reason to shoot for perfect scores. Credit is a tool to be used. Shoot for a score that will get you the credit, terms, and sign up bonuses that you desire. ~ 750+ is good enough. There are no awards, money, or status given to those with an 850. It has no use other than a number to brag about. Those with perfect scores are leaving money on the table, I'll take the $$$ and they can have the 850.
Lol , whats your Fico? 849, and yours? $$$😁 i want one of those
Lol cracked me up again AJC!
@OP ; Some Seasoned myFICOers here would even argue that a 750+ is better than an 850 in terms of “lender appeal” as they know right off the bat that the 850 carries zero profitability for them whereas a 750 though a bit riskier brings $$ into their pockets!
All the 850 does is a bragging right and prestige here in the myFICO community and deservingly so (with praises and admiration) Think about it, how many of the people we all know outside of this community really knows and understand about FICO?
