credit scoring

trying to find out how long it usually takes for your credit score to be positively impacted once you pay off your credit cards.

Re: credit scoring



If your FICO score were to be impacted, it would do so once the credit cards update to your credit report(s). Most all CCs will report the balance you had on the statement date of your CC and report that balance within 2-3-4 days or so following that statement date. Once your credit reports update, then your FICO score could change. The change is dependent upon how much of your utilization changed on your cards, the amount of the new vs. old balances, whether or not utilization is weighted within your scoring profile, among other factors.
