Paying off credit cards makes my score go down??
I used the Credit Score Simulator to see what happens when I pay off my credit cards..My score went down, why is this? My wife did the same thing, and her score went up. I'm at 600 and need a 620 to get a VA loan. I thought paying them off would help it go up..not take it down..Any ideas or advice on how to keep it going up?
