My loan offer pulled my credit 06/24/09 and my credit scores are has follows:
TU: No credit score to report
I have a CD with my local credit union that has helped boost my score that high. I need to get a least 2 credit cards that use EQ and Exp. So far, every card I've tried seems to be using TU. Any suggestions??Your help is greatly appreciated.

Based on your post on the Rebuilding forum, I would pull your free credit reports first and try and work on removing some of these collections before you worry about opening new credit. If you are trying to purchase a home then there are ways around your lack of credit. Start with repairing first, then go to the mortgage forum and seek information about FHA and USDA mortgages.
Again, work on fixing the baddies first.
