Default What'* your Credit Score?

This is an offspring of the other thread we've had recently "what'* your debt?" I'm curious how good of credit our Bonneville Club members have. If you don't know, I highly recommend checking out your credit report. It'* always good to know what'* on there!

www.annualcreditreport.com (I'm sure there are others out there too, that'* just the one I know of.) Now, For the poll..

Quote:
A person'* calculated FICO score may range on a scale from approximately 300 to 850. The higher one'* FICO score is the better his /her standing to avail of loans or credits. The median FICO score is around 720, FICO scores higher than 725 are considered good while those which are below 600 are considered bad. FICO scores that range from 750 to 850 are excellent scores which tells of his/her creditworthiness and would enable the individual to be granted credit or loans almost immediately by finance firms or banks. 660 to 749 are good FICO scores that would entitle the individual to credits or loans with certain conditions and with limits as to the amount of money they can use from these institutions. Fair FICO scores of 620 to 659 are regarded with much consideration since these are not good digits based on the FICO score scale. Poorer scores that range from 350 to 619, may be sufficient for finance firms to deny the applicants credit or loans.
I checked mine a few weeks ago and am at 760. I was surprised. In January of 2007, I was 710!

I went roughly off the article I posted. I didn't put mine at excellent on the poll, but as good. 760 for all intents and purposes is considered good/excellent though.

765 for me. I about crapped myself when I saw the number... I've never ran a credit report before so I now I know.

I've only had one credit card (through a jewelry store that I used to get my g/f some earrings with a few years back) and about 10k in student loans.

Thats it. I don't have a credit card, I don't make payments on anything (I buy my cars all outright), and I try to only buy what I can afford.

....but I really didn't expect to have such a high number and I'm only 21.
