Are they supposed to give me my scores?

Is it required that CC lenders are supposed to send your scores whether or not you are approved?  I just thought about it and I have not received anything of the such on my last spree>

You get a score (the score they used, not necessarily a FICO) if you are denied, or not given the best terms they offee (IE: higher apr than the lowest they offer) otherwise a lender isnt required to give it to you.

Re: Are they supposed to give me my scores?

it would be on the approval or denial letters. if not given the best terms. as stated. 


for example for a amex charge card you wouldnt get one as you cannot get any better terms then that since its pif every month. 


revolvers though you should get it in the letter usually on the back in smal print but a bold score.

I'm pretty sure it goes.

They have to give you your scores, but only if you denied, and only if that was a part of the reason why. (So if its something else like too many recent HPs, then no you don't get it)

I don't think they are required to send your scores when approved but many seem to be doing this anyway.
