6 Credit Cards. How long until I get back to 700+ Fico?

Postby Credit Card guy » Wed Nov 14, 2012 7:38 pm

...if I keep them under 30% debt? A lot of them are pretty high. Some are ranging between 60-80%. Found out that my Fico score was in the low 620s when about 6 months ago I was 725 middle score. Luckily for me I am able to bring down the debt on all of them however I am unable to get approved for anything it seems.

Anyways, I was wondering how many months it would take for me to get back up to the 700 range.

It should go back up as soon as you get your utilization below 30%

To add to what Cashback said, also keep your utilization if you can to under 10% because it looks like you might be crazy and spending, and high utilization can lower your scores as well.
