Transunion score goes up, Vantage goes down
Wondering if anyone can/has figured out why Transunion score goes up and Vantage goes down? My Transunion went from 729 to 660 because of 2 months at 30% utilization (because it wasn't updated and was really only 20%) then went down to 646 after a credit inquiry (understandable) on July 9th, but has slowly come back up to 690 since I received the card the inquiry was done for and it also updated my credit utilization. My Vantage score went from 718 to 737 during those two months that Transunion went down. Went to 717 because of the inquiry (understandable) on July 9th but then after I received my other card and my credit utilization when down my score dropped down to 679. Other people have had these issues but no one has had an answer as to why.
