What Credit Card who would be the best to use?

I  just checked our FICO for TU and it came back a 697.  Experian FAKO was a 714, and EQ was a 667.  Who would be the best to use that looks at Transunion or Experien?  Also we have a dismissed BK from 2001.

Thanks

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that Barclay's is an exclusive TU puller.

 

Is your EQ score a FICO or a FAKO?  You may be a very good candidate for a credit union, especially if you make them really happy with a deposit account.

State Farm uses TU for credit.  For insurance they pull EX.

Thanks for the information.  The Trans Union was an actual FICO score.  Does State Farm issue a credit card and does any one have any information on it?  Also with State Farm and Barclays....will the 2001 BK affect their decision?

Thanks

Not sure if they are BK friendly.  I think they do tolerate old late payments.
