Kohls Charge

I applied for a Kohls charge and it says they pulled experian with a score of 654. Is this a faco score or my actual score with experian? ( recived a letter in the mail from kohls stating why i was declined and it says who pulled the report and included my score)


Thanks for the help :smileyhappy:

Re: Kohls Charge

I believe this is a FICO score from the lender. It will say what the scoring model they used. If it is out of 850 (highest) then its FICO.

Re: Kohls Charge

Yeah if you shop there alot their rewards or benefits are pretty good. My mom was approved back in November 2009 with a $800 CL and has been stuck with that CL since. Oh well, you can get other better store cards with that score, and im not sure if its a FICO or FAKO.

I agree with getting better store cards you should give GE a shot they very good with credit increases they are also SP's.

Re: Kohls Charge

I was approved for one back in April of 2012 with a 300 limit. It was foolish to me apply for the card when i knew i didnt shop there much (just wanted to take advantage of the 15 or 20% off the purchase).  And till this date that is the only time i have been to Kohls.

Cards: (Chase x7) (Citi x6) (Amex x5) (BofA x3) (US Bank x4) (Barclays x4) (WF x3) (Cap1 x3) (Synch x3) (Penfed x2) ( Macys Amex) (Discover, Nasa ,Diners x1) PLOC: Citi (18k) WF (10k)
