Need a card that

Which CC out there pulls TU only....as this is my highest score atm. It does't matter if it is a store card or not.

 

Any info is appreciated.

anything Barclay, but it also depends on that state you reside in. Some States primarily pulls Transunion.  GE also pulls Transunion.

Unfortunately, when your scores are sub 600, your approval chances on any of your reports are pretty slim. I would recommend holding off on apps and working on rebuilding your score first. A secured card would also be appropriate for your situation.

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $22.200, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Chase CSP (4/14) $12,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Forward (12/12) $9,600, Chase Freedom (12/12) $5,000

Barclay only pulled TransUnion for my NFL Extra Points Card = $4500CL

 

My other reports don't even show an inquiry from Barclay.

I have 1 new Secured CC with a $1,000.00 CL. The LO that I talked to basically said  I need more revolving credit. I'm just not sure what is the best plan of action.

Re: Need a card that

Well, I'm not sure what the best plan of action is either, but from reading a few of your past threads it sounds like you are working on your baddies, which is great.

Your second step is to get a few positive tradelines, which appears to be what you are working on now. The problem is, that won't happen overnight. And you will only hurt yourself more if you try to rush it. A new card probably needs 4-6 months reporting before it will really help you in approvals for unsecured credit.

I would suggest waiting a little longer before applying for anything since denials will only add INQs and lower your score. If you really feel it is necessary, you could get a second secured card to make sure that you have 2 new positive tradelines reporting, but either way you will likely need to wait until the card you have now ages to 6 months before you have a shot at unsecured credit.

Then again, there are always the bloodsucker subprime lenders out there, but I'm not an expert in that category and would have to defer any advice for them.

In all reality, you are probably close to a year or longer away from qualifying for a mortgage with your current scores unless something out of the ordinary occurs.
