What credit score do you have to have to get a Meijers, Bank of America, or Chase card?

You need to obtain your FICO scores and know the content of your CBR's before contemplating app'ing for credit.

Especially if you are looking at creditors like Chase or BOA. You may need to do some cleaning up of your reports. Never blindly app.

Be sure that when you do pull your "scores", you're pulling FICO scores, not FAKO's. The scores that you get from freecreditreport-dot-com, TrueCredit, CreditSecure, and on and on are FAKO's and don't track FICO's at all.

Credit Card scores
* Credit is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master. * Who's the boss --you or your credit?
FICO's: EQ 781 - TU 793 - EX 779 (from PSECU) - Done credit hunting; having fun with credit gardening. - EQ 590 on 5/14/2007

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
