Leverage a good TU score

So there is some disparity between my fico scores.  I'm at 681 TU but only 660 EXP and 635 Equifax.  What, if any CC companys use TU as their CRA for approvals?

 

Thanks for any input

Discover, GE, and Barclay's are heavy TU pullers! Also keep in mind though for certain companies it will depend on your geographical location!

Hmm...you can try whogavemecredit.com for more accurate TU pullers for your state, but i'm in NJ, and so far all the ones I mentioned are TU pullers for my state! Mostly everyone else pulls EX for my area! I would assume Maryland wouldn't be too far off!

Discover is one of those geographical location pullers Smiley Wink.  They just don't use EX much at all.

 

OP: Maryland is hardcore EQ country historically from a location perspective if you've been there a while.  I'd second the suggestion to look at the credit pull databases.

Starting Score: EQ 04 561, TU 98 567, EX 98 599 (12/30/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 693, EQ 8 716, TU 8 713, EX 8 740 (09/06/16)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/17)
