NFCU offers free FICO scores. Mine is 807 out of 850. Two of the problems listed:
1. Too few accounts currently paid as agreed. FICO® Scores consider the number of accounts that are paid as agreed.

I have only one active credit card; No active store cards.

Your score was impacted because your credit report shows no recent non-mortgage installment loans or insufficient recent information about your loans. Paid cash for our house.
