... We scored a 759 out of 850. This has us puzzled. Just what
does one have to do to get 800???

Anything above 740 or so is effectively "perfect".

Actually, I looked this up just now, and most lenders seem to use
720 or so as the "perfect" level (even though Fair Isaac's FICO
scores do go to 850).

Having a higher limit on the credit cards (with less money out on
it) improves the score.

Just the opposite. CC's are good for initially establishing a good credit
history. But, having a lot of unsecured credit hurts your score.

That may be the case with some scorers, but Fair Isaac's FICO uses
a "percent of limit" number. See, e.g.,
