Score from myFico. EQ dropped 20 points from 609 (lowest) after I paid and balance for Walmart card is at $3,300 of $3,500 limit. I'm looking to pay this down to at least 30% util as soon as I can after my two other cards but is this normal?

 

Overall utilization of my cards are around 42% with four cards that are 80-85% utilization each.

segmentation when you have high utilization on individual cards and overall can result in modest changes. 20 points is not a major change within a segment.

What's this segmentation you speak of?

FICO scores group consumer scores into 10 or 12 segments (depending on the version of FICO). you can search keyword "Segmentation" on CB to read more.

"Segmentation" is an older term. Many people now use the terms "buckets" or "rebucketing". FICO itself uses the term "scorecards".

"bucket" is the term used on consumer boards but segmentation and scorecard are used by people in the industry (not just FICO; internal scores are segmented too :) )
