Utilization dropped by 54% yet my score didn't change at all, why?
CK shows me with a score of 604. I applied for another card and received approval with a $5,000 limit. Paid off my other two cards which had very small balances. I have read here that utilization accounts for 30% of my score, if so why didn't my score change and will it likely do so in the future in your opinion? Thanks.
