Nobody on this earth knows how many points your score will increase or decrease due to these actions.  There's just too many factors involved.  If you want to learn how FICO credit scores are calculated, visit www.myfico.com.  The score you see here is not a real score, it is just for your entertainment and education purposes and to monitor your overall credit health.  To learn more on how to drive up your credit score, visit www.credit.about.com.  Best of luck!
