Fico score same as Credit Sesame

[ Edited ]

Just thought I would let everyone know.

 

I got my new AMEX BCE in the mail today, it only took like 3 days after approval to get it.

 

MyFico credit score was EX 737 which matches Credit Sesame score, which I thought was odd!

Scores- 724 TU Fico (Walmart TU), 737 EX Fico (Amex Pull), ? EQ
Goal = 750's across the board

Cards- $12.5k cashRewards, $2000 IT, $6000 BCE, $2300 Walmart Discover, $1200 Freedom

It's just coincidental that the scores are matching ~ there's no correlation.

It could be some kind of divine miracle, or it might be related to the fact that Credit Sesame (like Credit.com and Quizzle) also pulls their scores from Experian.

 

Don't count on the scores matching up with any regularity, as credit scores are only a snapshot of a particular moment in time, and can change by the hour, depending on when new data is submitted and subsequently recalculated.

 

They may appear static, only because there is a time-lag between re-calculations.

 

Congratulations on the BCE - remember to 3xCLI on Day-61.

Me too! My credit sesame has been at or within a couple of points from the Experian Fico Amex provided twice.

Quite true. For a long time my CS score wasn't anywhere near my FICO score. Then a few things changed on my reports and my CS score suddenly jumped up and was more or less commensurate with my FICO score. But for the longest time the two were way out of line with each other.

Totally agree with tinuviel. I have no idea what happened but it is 2-3 points +/- . CK is in a whole different dimension. Lol

A broken clock is accurate twice a day.

 

Perhaps we should give Credit Sesame some respect for being at least that accurate too.
