Re: Walmart FICO

What is this about ? If you get approved for the Walmart/GE credit card, you can get your updated actual FICO score every month ? I got a pre-approval thing in the mail from them in early December but I missed the deadline to apply because my dad had a heart attack. If they sent me a pre-approval already I could probably apply and be approved. BUt I am intereste din hearing more about this. It's good stuff.

It's an actual FICO, but using a newer model than the one most lenders (or MyFico) use. So there will still be differences between it and other TU scores.

Mortgage lenders true.  I strongly suspect the vast majority of national lenders in their credit cards have moved on to '08 and likely Bankcard-enhanced as well.  My Walmart FICO is markedly higher with a worse report than my EQ '04 here; I was stunned and amazed at my recent CC approvals until I saw the Wally score, which is far easier to explain how I managed to garner two Amex approvals over the last few months which were frankly a Hail Mary and an utterly laughable application respectively judging from the EQ and TU scores found here.

 

In all fairness to the wonderful service provided here, I'd much rather have an '08 than a '98 FICO model, though '04 is where it's at for me as mortgage > all for me these days.

 

Starting Score: EQ 04 561, TU 98 567, EX 98 599 (12/30/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 700, TU 04 731, EX 98 725 (05/24/15)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/16)

Re: Walmart FICO

I have been having to "re-enroll" since I started in Dec. 2012. However, even though the date always updates, the score itself has not changed for me. Meanwhile, every other site I check (Creditkarma, et al) has changed scores monthly.

Re: Walmart FICO

   The original premise of this thread is kind of moot now because we are waaay past the date in question. I logged in for the first time to the service and got my score fine. My info doesn't help empirically really cause it was the first time and thus I cant tell if my graph got erased cause i had no graph before. Oh well. I dont wanna look at my score anyway cause its so bad. Just gardenning here.
