Check www.whogavemecredit.com for some comparisons. 

 

You can also Google "credit pulls database" for the site of which we may not speak and do the same thing.  They have a comprehensive comparison database. 

EX = 849 EQ = 850 TU = 850 as of 07/2017

Do you have a banking relationship with them?

I think you have a decent chance for approval with those scores. It's all going to come down to how much revolving history you have and util %.

 

They pulled EX for me and I was countered the partially secured 99/500 cash rewards card (which has sense unsecured). But at that time I didn't have any revolving history. So if you have at least a year of revolving history and low util then I would say your chances are good. I would suggest a clean report as well, no baddies, but YMMV

I got a BoA Cash Rewards 1% card which they PCed to a 123 Cash Rewards card after six months.  When I applied, I had a EX of 650 with about twenty old baddies, but I also had a banking relationship with them that went back a few years with over $20,000 in my BoA savings account so that may have influenced their decision.


Starting Score: TU: 566
Current Score: TU: 741 (Discover FICO); EQ: 755 (MyFico) EX: 774 (FAKO)
