Re: what creditors dont pull from experian

There are plenty of creditors that don't pull EX but to help you better, what type of card are you looking for?

 

Edit: And don't apply for credit to just apply for credit. If something like an Amex or other EX pulling CCC is what you really want, just garden for awhile and try again in 6 months. There is no point in getting a card you don't truly want.

Re: what creditors dont pull from experian

Ge cards don't or at least mine done. chase and amex do. A lot of other cards don't. check that creditpulls databases on a competing site. It has a lot of info. Im not sure if I am allowed to provide a link to it here.   What cards pull from where varies a lot depending on where in the country you are located as well. Equifax if i remember correctly began as the Welcome Wagon ladies who would go to your house in the south and give you free stuff to welcome you to the neighborhood. They would keep track of some info on new people which eventually became equifax,  Experian came from a company called TRW but is now actually headquartered in Ireland. Transunion came out of chicago. Different companies have different deals with the 3 firms. For example DCU credit union pays equifax money to get fico scores for all its clients and thus get a discount cause of economies of scale so they pretty much always use Equifax. Check the creditpulls database...
