Banks that pull TU exclusively?

My TU score/report is a lot better than EX and EQ so I was curious which banks almost exclusively pull TU? I know of Barclay's and Walmart, just curious what else is out there for options. Thanks!

i'm gonna be "that guy" for a moment:

 

This question is asked nearly every week if not more often. I suggest using the search function to your advantage. 

 

However, to answer your question. GE pulls nearly exclusively TU as well as Barclays. As for others, its all YMMV to what bureau they pull as well as where you are located. 

 

Good luck!

I guess Discover seems to pull depending on location...when my brother applied for the Open Road, they pulled TU for him! We're in NJ

Re: Banks that pull TU exclusively?

In addition to one's mentioned, BOFA for CLI's (my personal use for TU) and likely some CU's though I don't know any offhand personally.  CareCredit and I think there may be one or two other exceptions to GE-backed cards pulling TU typically.

 

Unless you happen to be in the mid-West, or have a lender which uses TU exclusively or roughly half of the time (Discover/NFCU), TU is commonly the underutilized report.

 

Starting Score: EQ 5 561, TU 98 567, EX 2 599 (12/30/11)
Current Score: EQ 5 771, TU 4 758, EX 2 758, EQ 8 795, TU 8 762, EX 8 786 (7/28/17)
Goal Score:    EQ 5 750, TU 4 750, EX 2 750, EQ 8 800, TU 8 Blah, EX 8 800 (01/01/18)
