Which TU version for Walmart?

 My fico from here is 650 something, but our lender pulled a 624 yesterday. Which version does Walmart use?


Starting Score: 492 02/12
Current Score: TU: 668 (FICO), EQ: 668 (FICO). EX: 651(lender pull 9/27/12)
Goal Score: 660

TU08

 

ETA for clarification....do you mean the free monthly FICO? If so, it's TU08. If you meant the score the lender uses to approve/deny, then the answer is different. I think they use their own internal score being GECRB.

Really?  Now that is interesting.  So they give us what is equivalent to a FAKO score to them?  

 

But aren't most lenders using TU08 though?

It technically is a fako score since it isnt a FICO score. They use their own proprietary scoring model.

The score you receive monthly though is a TU FICO.

GECRB uses their scoring model for all of their cards.

Not that I've seen as based on what others posted. I can think of one, maybe, and that hasn't been fully verified.
