Alliant (ex next generation advanced risk 2.0) score online

Re: New Alliant score (ex fako) online

Might be their credit card enhanced score. If it isn't Plus or Vantage that would be my guess.

Alliant has updated their faq on the credit scores they offer. They state that it is the EX Next Generation Advanced risk 2.0 score. This is a true fico score. Not sure how useful it is in the real world but it is not a fako score.

Probably as useful as the TU score you buy here.

 I paid for my TU score here once and it was the same score/model that my mortgage lender used/provided. I hear that it is a YMMV situation with TU though.

Re: New Alliant score (ex fako) online

anyone else find it odd that they offer a product (score watch from EX) when they only use EQ for your approvals?

and the score watch I got was like mid 650's and the EQ advantage they pulled was 610 which was not the 642 my EQ Fico is.

 

So no 3 of them are close to the same, so how does that help me!

Every once in a blue moon, USAA softs me on EX, although they are usually strictly EQ.

I suppose it makes sense from their viewpoint to check out a different CRA, in case you were able to do some magic on EQ that didn't show baddies on the other two.

I guess that Experian gave the scores out for next to nothing in their attempt to corner the credit score market. As to the value, it's limited. You will get your score 4 times a year. You may still see whether it's up or down from last time.

Re: New Alliant score (ex fako) online

I got an email stating my score was avail so logged in to see it was an experian score which was strange since Alliant used EQ for me and my EX is frozen. Anyway for whatever it works and wish it was my fico it says my score was 790.

Starting Score: 8/2008 521
Current Score: 734
Highest Ever: 4/2009 759
Goal Score: 760+
