I do not think it is worthwhile to pay to raise your card limit so as to raise the score 35 points. It will do that anyhow if you just stay below 10% usage, and pay on time and in full,.

Your score will heal over time. Paying money to try and accelerate that is kind of a waste of your money for something that will happen anyhow if you use cards responsibly. Better to save that money.
