Credit Card Center Advertiser Disclosure†

I got my Discover It card in the mail today (yay!). What kind of confused me is that on the letter they sent me, they said my Equifax FICO was 728 - on the same day that myfico said it was 752. I know there's only one true fico score...so which one is right?

I remember reading something about Discover's score being "bankcard enhanced"..whatever that means.

as mentioned elsewhere today, there are 49 versions of FICO scores so both scores are right, its just a matter of which one the creditor is using

Without their stating so, we're pretty confident that Discover isn't using the EQ version found here, namely EQ Beacon 5.0 / EQ FICO '04 base or classic.
It's possible they're using:
The other options aren't particularly likely; however, sadly without a lot more anecodtal data or unless there becomes a legal mandate to disclose the exact score that was used, we're sort of making SWAG's.
