  2. Happy Friday! I’ve been away for a bit as life and gardening was in session. While away, I reached a couple of milestones: TU8 hit 850 and I am now closed on a mortgage. Started today off with reading through CV’s early mortgage payoff and I’ll be searching next for app spree/sub data so that I can continue to develop my credit arsenal. Thanks CB!
  3. Logged into Logix yesterday. They auto increased my cc from $5,000 to $13,000. Only increase in 4 years. Was a little surprised by the pop up lol
  4. A car loan triggered the "Too many consumer finance accounts" message for me.
  5. Commence $20,500 AMEX BCP, Walmart, Lowes $20,000 Venture $19,000 Income $73,000
  6. Yes, had an offer of $150 for $1,000 spend in first 3 months. I have two boys (12 & 17) so an increase on cash back for groceries and gas works great for me. Thanks!
  7. I've received an offer to upgrade my AMEX BCE to BCP. Will a PC impact my established D* of 2002?
  8. How does Navy Federal use FICO® Scores? Like most other lenders, Navy Federal may use your FICO® Score as one piece of information among many to help make a more informed credit decision about you. How are FICO® Scores calculated? FICO® Scores are calculated from many different pieces of credit data in your credit report. This data is grouped into five categories as outlined below. The percentages in the chart reflect how important each of the categories is in determining how FICO® Scores are calculated. 35% - Payment History 30% - Outstanding Debt 15% - Length of Credit History 10% - New Credit 10% - Credit Mix What are FICO® Scores? FICO® Scores are numbers that summarize your credit risk. Scores are based on a snapshot of your credit file at particular consumer reporting agency at a particular point in time, and help lenders evaluate your credit risk. Why are you providing FICO® Scores? Reviewing your FICO® Scores can help you to better understand your financial health. How often will I receive my FICO® Score? Members will receive their FICO® Score 9 based on Equifax data updated on a bi-monthly basis, when available. Will accessing my FICO® Score impact my credit? No. The FICO® Score we provide to you will not impact your credit. Why is my FICO® Score not available? Your credit card account is new. It may take over two billing cycles for us to populate your score. nRewards® Secured and First Time Borrowers Cardholders. It might take additional time for nRewards® Secured and First Time Borrowers to see their FICO® Score. The Credit Bureau doesn't have adequate data. FICO® Scores are calculated based on credit reports at the US credit reporting agencies. FICO® Scores are not available when a credit bureau cannot match the necessary data about the consumer. Where does the information used to calculate my FICO® Score come from? FICO® Scores are based on the credit information in a credit file with a particular consumer reporting agency (CRA) at the time the score is calculated. The information in your credit files is supplied by lenders, collection agencies and public records. Not all lenders report to all three major CRAs. The FICO® Score 9 that we provide to you is based on data from your Equifax report as of the "pulled on date" shown with your score. What are Key Score Factors? When a lender receives a FICO® Score, "key score factors" are also delivered, which explain the top factors from the information in the credit report that affected the score. The order in which FICO® Score factors are listed is important. The first indicates the area that most affected that particular FICO® Score and the second is the next significant area. Knowing these score factors can help you better understand your financial health over time. However, if you already have a high FICO® Score (usually in the mid-700s or higher), score factors are informative but, not as significant since they represent very marginal areas where your score was affected. Why is my FICO® Score different than other scores I've seen? There are many different credit scores available to consumers and lenders. In addition, FICO® Scores are based on credit file data from a particular consumer reporting agency, so differences in your credit files may create differences in your FICO® Scores. The score being made available through this program is FICO® Score 9. When reviewing a score, take note of the score date, consumer reporting agency credit file source, score type, and range for that particular score. Why do FICO® Scores fluctuate/change? There are many reasons why a score may change. FICO® Scores are calculated each time they are requested, taking into consideration the information that is in your credit file from a particular consumer reporting agency (CRA) at that time. So, as the information in your credit file at that CRA changes, FICO® Scores may also change. Review your key score factors, which explain what factors from your credit report most affected a score. Comparing key score factors from the two different time periods can help identify causes for a change in a FICO® Score. Keep in mind that certain events such as late payments or bankruptcy can lower FICO® Scores quickly. How do I check my credit report? Because your FICO® Score is based on the information in your credit report, it is important to make sure that the credit report information is accurate. You may get a free copy of your credit report once every 12 months.
