What is your FICO score?

submitted on March 9, 2009 by YanBz in "Member's Lounge"


I wonder how accurate this distribution and what the average score among Buxr members is...

    Question for you. You discuss your love of credit card deals on your blog probargainhunter.com. I've always heard that signing up for credit cards to get introductory offers and bonuses and then canceling them would hurt your credit score, but it looks like your score is pretty good. Any thoughts?

    I routinely cancel the credit cards I don't use, could this be the answer? Besides, I have not signed up to a new credit card for a long time (probably since summer of 2008)...

    Its the average length of your credit card ownership that matters. So if you maintain 1-2 credit cards for longer periods (years) then signing up for intro offers and cancelling them shouldn't affect your score.
