Alliant CU -

Just joined Alliant CU - they offer a free monthly FICO score as well. But, I was actually eyeing their CC information. When I called to find out details, I was told that my membership was NOT a HP but a SP! Go figure. At that point I pressed and asked about obtaining new loan products within 30 days. They will use the SP, however a HP will be used for the credit decision - just as an FYI for anyone interested. No, I didn't add to my collection....... (kicks dirt and rolls eyes up) :smileywink: I am gardening but setting my sights for next year..... sigh

Re: Alliant CU -

You have a really nice selection of CCs in your sig! Why do you want to add Alliant cu? It doesn't seem like it would be a step up. I'm sure they're ok, but you have really nice cards already! :smileyhappy: you can get some CLIs on the cards you have and preserve your AAOA.

Re: Alliant CU -

Thx. :smileyhappy: Probably from overthinking my collection instead of enjoying what I have.

After Some quick research , It looks like it's a vantage score judging by the range.

Re: Alliant CU -

At one point they offered a NextGen FICO, but that's no longer the case. There are a few threads buried in here somewhere announcing those changes (gosh...3-4 yrs ago).

Alliant offers the vantage score to their consumers which updated every 3 months and  they do not use the vantage score internally for their own credit approvals. 

BCE 12800, bofa travel rewards 8k, Barclays apple 6200, Macy's 2000, Macy's Amex 3200, merrick bank 300 , Victoria secret 1350, jcrew 1350
