Equifax score is great! Which credit cards pull Equifax?

I've been scouring the boards for this but haven't found anything yet - I hope y'all can give me some good pointers. 

 

I've also checked whogavemecredit.com and it's hard to separate the info there - if you search for a card based on your Equifax score, it shows all cards offered - even those that actually pulled TU or EXP.  

 

Any help would be so much appreciated!!

Just puttin' syrup on something, don't make it pancakes.

if you don't belong to one, join a credit union, many pull EQ:  http://www.creditunionswork.com/why.php

 

nordstrom, an excellent card, pulled EQ for me too.

We do belong to a CU - but they pull Experian.  I'll look into Nordstrom's - is that a department store card only or a general visa?

Re: Equifax score is great! Which credit cards pull Equifax?

if you app the visa they will consider you for the store card if you don't qualify for the visa, both are best in class candidates for sure. i  apped the visa and got the store card a few months ago.  the card is one of my two favorites.  

 

after the 6-7 month you can readily upgrade a store card to the visa.  they're often applauded for top notch cs as well.  i believe the lowest apr currently available is tier 1 = 7.9% a rarity for a store card really.  nordstrom bank, who underwrites, is a v. strong bank.  a real winner. 

 

also, imho it can be beneficial to belong to more than one CU, since one may offer better rates on this or that, and it sounds like you may have room for an EQ pulling CU in your 'roster'.  here's an example of an excellent one that seems to have had a spike in popularity recently.  you can be preapproved for their loan products upon online application under the one pull if you qualify.

Wow!!  Thanks for the great information.  Just applied at Alliant and received $10,000 at about 12%.   I could not have done that on my own - your recommendations are superb and helped me find the Alliant threads here (Alliant Credit Union rocks, Alliant Credit Union tips, and one or two others).  This board has truly knocked my socks off!  Thanks so much for the help.  We're rebuilding - so thank you thank you!
