Re: American Express credit scores

I have been using Amex Credit Secure for years and really like them. Once I got my scores through here and other sources such as Walmart and from other credit applications I have found the Amex Plus scores to always be within 1-10 points accuracy.

Starting Score: EQ 717 EX 724 TU 736
Current Score: EQ 816 EX 780 TU 823
App free since 4/11/13

Re: American Express credit scores

I feel like there's too much lag time with the alerts- 2 days. personally, I prefer identity monitor from citi- the score analyzer feature was better & so is their explanation of score factors. Unless I'm doing something wrong, amex credit secure only breaks down ur score factors for experian.
I wouldn't rely on the scores from any credit monitoring service-all fakos.
Citi Thank You $13,200 - Chase Freedom $3,100 - AMEX Zync NPSL (init. ability $17.5K) - Citi Forward $7,000 - AMEX BCP $6,000 - USAA Rate Adv $15,000 - USAA World MC $12,000 - Discover More $4,000 - Amex Hilton Honors $4,500 - Amex SPG $2,000 - Barclay's Priceline Rewards $6,400 - Chase Sapphire Pref. $7,500

EQ: 794. TU: 704. EX: 755

Re: American Express credit scores

I registered for unlimited version for $24.99/mo one month ago because I'm doing rebuilding (GW, disputes, etc).

Pulled new reports and scores everyday and IMO they're doing a good job.

I also use CK, CS, Credit.com, Scorewatch, and the Quarterly myFICO TU.

 

My plan is to cancel the unlimited next month or two because I dont need it anymore.

FICO Scores 8: EX 731, EQ 731, TU 725

Credit Cards: Chase Freedom 9.5K | AMEX TrueEarnings 4.5K | Cap1 Venture Visa 3.5K | Cap1 QS MC 3.5K | Discover IT 1K | Cap1 Spark Cash 15K | AMEX SimplyCash 9K

Store: PayPal SmartConnect 10K | JCP 5.2K | Banana 3.3K | Walmart 4.5K | Kohls 1.5K | TargetRED 200

Re: American Express credit scores

If you use freecreditreport dot com product and Amex's they are identical in score.  Well at least it was 7 months ago when I used it for 2 months.

Re: American Express credit scores

My Plus scores vary greatly from my real Fico scores - For instance my Equifax Plus score is 70 points higher than my real FICO score, While my Experian Plus score is 60 points lower than my real FICO score. I would not count on the Plus scores for any actual financial/credit decisions!
