Experian alert that my Experian FICO score increased to 795.

Discounts and coupons from CVS. Bought a package of 160 pieces of Halloween candy (Snickers, M&M's, Dove Chocolate, Skittles) originally priced at $24.99 and walked away paying less than $14.00. 

 

The candy is securely locked away so DH won't get into it before the treat or treaters. 👻👍

I'm sworn to lay off the Halloween stash until after the porch light goes off.  But, then again, Bev usually anticipates that they'll bus kids into the neighborhood and hugely over stocks.  I usually have a cache that keeps me going until I can refresh after Easter :)

Same thing occurs here in Cali. After the neighborhood children finish trick or treating accompanied by their parents, then droves of unknown kids hit the houses afterwards.

I had a lot of that at the Austin house...once I figured out that they were bringing outsiders around simply because it was a two-comma neighborhood, I pretty much quit giving indicators I was home.

Halloween was one of the first areas in which my inner ambition shined ... I didn't so much "trick or treat" as lay siege to the city ;).  I remember being 11 and canvassing a 14x6 block section of our city (this was in a town w/ 20k pop.)  And, yes, the ritzier section was a key target.  I was the kid that would knock or ring your bell shortly before 10p because your porch light was still lit.

 

My parents were a scarce factor in much of my life ... if the porches didn't go dark first, I imagine I'd have continued to midnight or one.

I have a cool Halloween scary pumpkin projection that moves aimed above our xerioscape. I enjoy Halloween and we have some wonderful young new neighbors with children who have moved in.

 

As long as I have candy left I'll keep answering the door but once it's gone, off goes the porch light.

Learned a new term today :)  (my search was auto-corrected to "xeriscape")

 

If you can capture a decent pic when the time comes, please post an image ... would LOVE to see it!!  (Shades of the "Great Pumpkin" ;) )

Use your Target Mastercard to make $500 in net eligible purchases outside of Target or Target.com between 10/26/2021 and 12/10/2021, and Target will mail you a $25 coupon in January 2022.

Interesting...don't you already GET 5% to use the Target card on their website?  I know the store card gives it (they have never upgraded me).  This would be a nice double dip if you typically get anything at Target (our kitty litter comes through them due to the 5% and free shipping).

%5 off at target. dining gets 2% so earn the $25 spending $500 on dining then use the gift card at target. not terrible but it won't make me rich.

Won't make you rich, but hell...$25 IS still $25. That's a quarter tank of gas at the outrageous prices y'all have out there...

      REMINDER!
      Account Status 05 (Account transferred)
      to become obsolete for reporting
      Effective April 2022
       
      As noted within Exhibit 4 (Account Status Codes) in the Credit Reporting Resource Guide (CRRG®) since 2020, Account Status 05 (Account Transferred) will become obsolete for reporting in April 2022.
       
      Refer to the Transferred category within Exhibit 6 for a list of Special Comment Codes that should be used instead of Account Status 05. Refer to Frequently Asked Question & Answer 46 for guidance on reporting transferred accounts, and to Frequently Asked Question & Answer 47 for guidance on reporting sold accounts.
       
      All guidance that relates to accounts being transferred or sold has previously been updated to advise that the Account Status should be reported as of the time of transfer or sale so no further updates will be made to existing CRRG® FAQs (46 & 47) as a result Account Status 05 being retired.
       
      The Metro 2® Task Force recommends that data furnishers transition away from reporting Account Status 05 as soon as possible.
       
      If there are any questions, please e-mail metro2info@cdiaonline.org.
       
      Thank you,

      Any explanation would be great. I thought to list a series of events would be better than some long paragraph. I have pics and proof for all events below. 
       
      Mid May: Ordered Vehicle (checked credit score showing 730 at the time)

      June 7: Toyota Financial Services received payment for old lease

      June 12: TFS closed account
       
      June 30: TFS reported to the credit bureau account closed on June 12

      Friday July 9: Credit was pulled by dealer (first of knowing of outstanding balance on a said closed account)Was able to get bumped to a Tier 2. (Nothing was reported nor sent to me that I had an outstanding balance)
       
      Monday July 12: called Transunion because their score was what was pulled that hurt the deal. Transunion said that they show nothing of delinquency on my report AND show no history of it being removed nor it ever being on there in the first place.
       
      Evening July 12: called Experian because no other apps were showing a tier 3 credit score. They also said they had no history of it ever being on my report. (Talked to about five differnent people) They put me on a callback list to speak to a supervisor. Associate had said supervisor was in a meeting and would call back.
       
      July 13: Called Experian again to figure what happened. Received notifications that my credit score had increased 66 points and delinquency was removed notifications on Experian app. (No certainty that it was removed from report because they said there’s nothing bad on my report. I guess I take their word for it??)
       
      Evening July 13: received a notifications from credit apps that Toyota Motor Credit has reported positive activity on a outstanding loan balance. Loan paid.
       
      July 14: Called TFS to request document to cross reference dates.
       
      July 16: Called TFS to speak to Toyota Motor Credit. Turns out there’s no one to speak to in that department. It’s the same as calling TFS. Called Experian again to ask why they are just now reflecting on my credit that I had an outstanding balance that was just closed on July 13 not what TFS sent which states that it was closed in June 12. Experian had told me that the account was closed in June but when I explained to them that’s not what I’m seeing in my emails and notifications, they became combative and hung up on me. No one can tell me how and why on July 9, a inaccurate mistake cost me money and no one can send me my credit report to verify that there’s no delinquency. TFS agree that someone dropped the ball (but not them) and is willing to send any and all reports they have on my accounts. All credit bureaus has yet to send me to any documentation of removal of alleged delinquency and I will never know what happen on July 9th that cost me money. I’m paying more than I should and I could’ve been out of $1k(nonrefundable deposit to order vehicle) because I will not sign a tier 3 deal. Who knows how long I would’ve been without a car in this market if that were true.

      Hello,
       
      Does anyone know either by experience or with a good degree of certainty if American Express (AMEX) will decline card membership if you have ever filed bankruptcy against them? I have read somewhere that they keep a permanent “barred from membership list”.
       
      Is this right, no. However, as you probably know a financial institution may choose to do business with whomever they choose (a rather broad definition). I have read that even if an American Express account has been fully-discharged by a successfully complete bankruptcy case, they will no longer choose to do business with you.
       
      The reason I am asking is twenty years ago, I listed them as a creditor in my Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. I would like to apply for membership in the future when my current FICO is a bit stronger. However, I do not want to burn a hard-inquiry only for it to be declined.
       
      I apologize if I am not posting in the correct area. Thank you.
