Which CC only pulls EQ CR, PenFed????

[ Edited ]

Which Credit Card apps ONLY pull EQ or TU (hope to avoid EX)?  I have heard that PenFed and certain Credit Unions pull exclusively EQ.  Can I get some verification from people who have applied and been approved that were only pulled on EQ?

 

Thanks.

 

(Also would be interested in if an CCC's that only pull TU)

There is really no way to know for sure as there is no rule that requires such a thing. There are sites like whogavemecredit who will try to have people share their experiences but there is no guarantee or assurances there. Fact is they can pull from any and they often do. Although say PenFed, since you mentioned it, has been linked to pulling mostly EQ and they did for me but I have heard others say they got pulled on TU, so again no guarantee but you can have a higher expectation.

Re: Which CC only pulls EQ CR, PenFed????

EQ and TU are my strongest CR's, so either of those are fine.  For some reason, my oldest account only reports to those two (over 20 years) and not EX.  Consequently, my AAoA and oldest account is double what my EX has, so I am interested in Credit Union's who have a great CC and generous credit for the credit worthy.

 

I haven't apped for quite some time and want to make this round count.

 

So, updating my question:  Which CU's such as PenFed ONLY pul or usually only pull EQ or TU?

Yeah that's the case for many, especially the people on the west, like myself in CA and I am assuming you are in Texas, so EX has got to be killing you too. Smiley Happy

GE just pulled on TU for me for LensCrafters but EQ for CareCredit and EX for PP Buyer Credit. So I don't think GE is that predictable.

Most if not all GE Money Products (i.e. WalMart, Sams Club, Old Navy, Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers)

Delta Credit Union

DCU (for the most part)

Justice Federal CU

American Airlines Credit Union

Nordstrom (will only pull TU in addition to EQ if your app info does not match EQ records)

RBS (for the most part)

Liberty Bank & Trust
