You mean you had to pay interest on someone else's money? AFTER a year of interest free?

Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card

Same here. I use CC exclusively and pay off every month but sometimes the reporting agencies happen to catch the high balances and it affects my FICO score due to the balance to limit ratio and above 30% usage (even tho I pay off every month, or majority anyways)

So, applying for this card yesterday and I was approved for a nice 5 figure limit. That should stop my FICO from dropping because I'm sure now my usage will always be way under the 30%.

Thank you Chase Sapphire!

I got screwed becuase I applied for a card that CK said had the highest approval "chance". I only wanted it for cash back on gas and groceries and I pay my balances off every month. Well the credit card company declined me due to not having enough actual credit cards (I have 3 at the time of applying) and that I dont pay off my balances enough (I pay off the balance %100 every month for over a year now). Also my credit is over 10 years old with a FICO of between 700 to 745. I only have 3-4 inquiries with a couple being over 12 months old.

So basically, ITS A CRAP SHOOT.

Why the heck did my score drop 48 points in one month with only positive changes to accounts?

Its Credit Karmas algorithm. What you see on CK isn't exactly what's on your true credit reports.

I think CK does it to scare us into becoming better penny pinchers haha.

For instance, mine just dropped 30 points because of a slight utilization increase. It's only 16% ratio. I carry high balances and pay off every 1 to 2 months. Its annoying to say the least
