Average Age of Accounts - Large Drop
In Sept 2011, my accounts average age was 86 months. In Oct 2011, instead of going up by one to 87, it dropped to 77. I pulled a credit report (one of the free pulls allowed each year) and don't see any new accounts added during that time. Even if I opened one new account, Karma shows 29 total accounts and the effect of one new one should only bring the average down by a far smaller amount. Any thoughts on this?

Was the credit report that you pulled from TransUnion or one of the other bureaus? Since CK gets all its data from TU, it's possible there's something on the TU report that doesn't show up on the others. Could be that someone else's data is erroneously affecting yours.
