[ Edited ]

 

Did I read in here that we can bring our own(pulled today) reports to the CU? My TU sucks and Im trying to avoid hard pulls.

Thanks~

You can bring in your report, but CU is still going to HP you during application process. It is easy to forge a credit report.

In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi TY Preferred (05/2011) | BofA Travel Rewards (07/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011)
GECRB/PayPal (05/2012) | Discover it (07/2012) | US Bank Cash+ (08/2012) | AMEX BCE (09/2012)
Target (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012) | BofA Balance Rewards (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock (02/2014)

+1.  Bringing your credit report can be very helpful, though, in having the conversation about what you want to apply for. Most CUs are very upfront about what they can do for you based on the report you brought. As long as it is accurate and recent, then once they do the HP for something they said they would likely approve you for, it should be a practically guaranteed approval.

 

Did this when I was shopping my car loan, and my interest rate actually ended up being slightly better than what the loan officer told me before pulling my current report.

Starting: EQ 622 (myFICO 7/7/12), EX 696 (TU FAKO 8/14/12), TU 621 (CK TransRisk 7/24/12) Current: EQ 675 (myFICO 9/26/13), EX 712 (CreditSesame FAKO 10/9/13) , TU 696 (WalMart 10/3/13) Goal: 700+ x3
My Wallet: Amex BCP $10k, Amex Zync NPSL (> 10k), Chase CSP VS $9.2k, C1 Venture VS $5k, Amex SPG $4.5k, Barclaycard Apple V $2k, Walmart (Store) $1.2k, Chase Freedom V $600, BoA Cash Rewards V $500, Best Buy Rewards MC $500
Dream Wallet:Barclaycard Arrival WMC (replace C1 Venture), Amex Platinum (replace Zync eventually), Andrews FCU Global V (chip + PIN for travel). Otherwise, pretty happy with my portfolio now.

the tu score sold here is tu98. most credit unions use tu04 (which to my knowledge cannot be purchased anywhere) and tu08 which walmart provides when you enroll in paperless statements. that will explain the score differences

NFCU plat 5k | NAVCHECK 5k | NFCU cashrewards 3k | BOFA 123 3k |
Chase Freedom 1.5k | Amazon 1800 | Walmart 1450 | Buckle 300

Possibly bankcard enhanced too; given that many people in a rebuilding phase had trouble on a credit card in the past it's not unusual for it to be lower I suspect.  


Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 672, Wally TU 686, EX 702 (04/14)
Goal Score: 700 in all three (01/01/15)
