TU B* Journey...So It Begins (Any Help Greatly Appreciated!)

I am starting my TU B* journey. I've read many, many threads and feel like I'm ready to get started. There is only 1 inquiry on here, but I figure I'd start with TU get the skills down and then move on to EQ, which has a whopping 7 inquiries. Here is what I have.

 

Last hard was on 2/14/14
Pulling softs since 2/20 using
* MPM (daily)
* SCP (daily)
Random Softs
* Credit Karma (2/12, 2/28, 3/7, 3/14)
* Walmart Fico (3/5)
I *believe* I’ll hit 65 on 3/31/14 (Based on a spreadsheet and some hope)
Does that sound right? Any other daily pullers I could use. Wasn’t sure if it made sense to add TrueCredit.com (or myscore.com) for that matter. Although since you can see softs on TC...I'm not sure that is a good idea. I have read conflicting posts about C* on TU. If there really is no C* on TU, I'll cadd TC. If there is ...another puller seems prudent.
Planning to start B* on EQ once the March C* is confirmed. It is believed to be the 16-21. Although BobWangs chart SEEMS to indicate it happens on Saturday for NYC, so that would either be the 22nd, I think.
Any insight greatly appreciated!!

MPM/CK/etc don't really help for TU B* outside of a couple of softs.

 

if you want to add another puller besides SCP, the only one is TUP.

 

but you only need 56 for B*, not 65. where are people getting this 65 number?

It's from WELL before your time and only changed mysteriously to 55/56 a year or two ago.

 

I've NEVER cared what the number is anyways, just pull daily until inqs are gone. It's completely brainless. Many other things are much more important. :)

What is TUP? Also, smart credit looks like $24.95/month for unlimited pulls?

 

TUP is Transunion Plus and it's too expensive to use unless an emergency IMHO

 

for SC use this link for $9.95/month http://www.smartcredit.com/tim

 

TU B* could not be any simpler

 

it's less than two months of pulling and the price is fantastic

Exactly. I don't even track it, just pull and wait.

You guys are awesome. For EQ B*, which pullers are the best for my $$ now-a-days?

EQ B* takes an eternity. Lucky are the people that are not on the C* list. I would rather pull for 90 days, than pay for multiple pullers.

Just signed up for SC... I am going to do B for TR first to get practice for EQ. Thanks everyone for the great info.

Why is TU B* a journey?!!

 

It's a simple mindless thing, just pulling reports for 2 months with a single puller.

 

Why are you even bothering with 1 inquiry? Don't you have better things to do with your credit profile?

The only other thing I have to do is my 7 EQ inquiries. Waiting for the March C* date passes until I begin the Equifax B* journey. Wanted to make sure I understood the fundamentals, first. Lowering my utilization one month at a time. Looking to have it ~10% and paying down my student loans in the next six months.

      So when I was 18, I had a bank account with Wells Fargo for school, that my Grant went into. I was young and careless, and I spent beyond my means. Overdrafting several times. When I stopped going to school I never made another payment and now I'm stuck. I have this Wells fargo account in collections, it's been that way for 4 years, I have a Victoria's secret account that I've made a payment on in the past but can't find the information for seeing as I've moved since that's been there for 4 years as well, and as of 2013 I've got a 12k medical bill from being sent to the hospital and held there to see how I reacted. They didn't do anything at all for me or to me so I don't know why it was so much, but I didn't have insurance then, so it ended up being high. However, I just signed up for insurance, is there anyway to use that to cover the past expense? Helppp I really want to buy the house I'm currently renting but I need the credit to do so, and I'd like the opportunity to go back to school as well...I'm 21 years old now, what do I do?

      Just called to get paid copies mailed. The other two went fine, asked for payment and gave confirmation number. Trans Union just said it was "processed" and I'll get it in bla bla business days. I got free reports on 12/25, are they just sending me that? I tried to call to talk to a rep, but not open again till 8:30 monday.

      Hello All,
       
      As is said by many, this site is truly a godsend. I cannot commend you all enough for taking the time out of your schedules to assist people with rebuilding and understanding their credit. Thank you so much.
       
      I've been reading for awhile now and thought i'd take a stab at my first post in hopes of reaffirming the direction I think i should head. I get a bit overwhelmed when trying to figure out where to start.
       
      1.) I've opted out
      2.) I've sent letters to all CRA to remove old address.
       
      Below i've put on an excel spreadsheet the baddies on my account. I'm really hoping its possible to get some of these removed as certain searches on this site have given me less hope. I am currently in the middle of a streamline refinance of my home so I assume thats why the mortgage is listed twice below.
       
      My question is where is the smartest place to begin after the address situation is taken care of. I was assuming i would begin by calling the collection account for Express and demand a PTD, but I'm not sure if thats the best place to start.
       
      Theres also the credit one issue, i assume its in collections with them but I haven't received any calls.
       
      I also have the mortgage late issue which I'm not sure how to approach. I am current now but in 2012 had a few 30 and 60 days.
       
      Anyway, any help or direction would be great. I hope I've read up enough to post this, if not feel free to direct on something i should follow back up on. Thanks again everyone!

      I have a experian 578.
      I have a equifax 588.
      I have a transunion 586.
       
      Are there any credit cards I can get approved for?

      Hey fellow CBers:
       
      I hope everyone is enjoying themselves during this time of year. I have a question. On December 15th I FINALLY embarked on my app spree after putting it off for longer than I had wished. Well it paid off (more to come on that in another post! )
       
      My question is, I checked my mail on Tuesday and had an Invitation to apply for the Freedom Card. Here is my dilemma/question:
       
      1) During my spree I app'd for and was approved on the CSP $22K and Ink Plus $10K (though I feel that I could have received more had I answered other usage questions with higher numbers). So will this Freedom Invitation be null and void with those recent approvals?
       
      2) If I can apply, do I apply NOW? Or wait til I B* TU and freeze EX? (I am worried if I do this the new accounts will be reporting by then (total 6) and as of right now only Barclay's is reporting with 6 INQ on TU, but I can't freeze EX via online, says I must mail in, so I will call Monday.
       
      Any and all recommendations are appreciated! Thanks to all again, I will be updating CPDB and posting my approvals in the next few days. I know they are baby steps, but I am very happy with results and have CB and all of the awesome members here to thank!!!
