Be careful with this.  Very often, which CRA a creditor will pull depends on any number of factors, including which state you are in, the particular product you are applying for, the phase of the moon, and whatever mood they happen to be in at the time.
Citi, for example, is extremely unpredictable.  They may be reasonably expected to apull any of the three.  Same with Chase.
Discover pulls TU sometimes, but also pulls EX quite frequently.
WalMart (GEMB) sometimes pulls EQ.
WaMu (mentioned above) quite often pulls EX.
There are really only two virtually 100% definite TU pullers of which I am aware.  They are Juniper and Hooters.  As always, however, YMMV.

Re: Transunion

There is a place you can check who pulls what, according to what state you're in ... PM if interested, as I won't post it on here...
I'm here because I decided to stop hiding from my FICOS, CAs and OCs ~ and man, do I feel freer!

Re: Transunion

Juniper pulls EQ in my neck of the woods...west Texas.  So not 100% TU.

Latest scores: Walmart TU: 769. MyFICO TU: 769. DCU EQ: 755. MyFICO EQ: 780. PSECU EX: 756. MyFICO EX: 780.
