I followed the suggestions from Credit Karma and my credit soared. Getting more credit cards was a shocker to me, but I did it and pay them off each month. They want to see that. I also cleared up a disputed medical payment from a couple years before, even though I still felt I was in the right. Paying it off increased my score.

credit scores vs credit karma scores

Credit scores similar

My credit scores on Credit Karma are within a few points of Transunion (808 with Credit Karma and 806 with TU) and Equifax (804 with Credit Karma and 807 with Equifax). 

If your score recently increased, it could be that they just don't have the most recent report, so check back next month.
