Is Bose Credit Card considered a Store Card?

If I get that card, since it is not Visa or MC, would that show up as a store card on my FICO reports? How will it effect my credit? Do I have to have a store card to improve my credit?

Any experience with this card? Who do they pull?

Thanks for the info.

Yep- it will show as a Store card (charge card)
 
If you have NO store cards you may see a litttle bump in score or a minimal hit for the new account.
