I paid off a credit card but my score dropped 15 points. Why?
I paid off my Best Buy credit card to a $0 balance and it's being reported as such. I have two other credit cards open and both are reporting i'm using 3% of the limit so i'm showing revolving activity. Why would my score drop 15 points for paying off the Best Buy card?
