Good question.   My most recent correspondance from them with a Transunion score actually doesn't state anywhere that it is FICO score, although I believe that it is, the range matches the FICO score range.     I'm digging around to see if I have any other FICO scores that I can match up to this.

 

Your Credit Score:  633

 

Scores range from a low of 300 to a high of 850.

Re: which tu model does barclays use?

I was wondering the same thing. I just recently got approved for the Barclay's rewards card and I'm still waiting on the card to come in. If it comes with my score I can give u a comparison between what they got and my score here on MYFICO.


Starting Score: EQ 609, EX 633(Fako), TU 700
Current Score: EQ 699, EX 758, TU 733
Goal Score: 720 across the board

Re: which tu model does barclays use?

I am curious to know too. My TU score in my signature was after I applied for the Apple's reward card. Fingers crossed that it is the 04 model :smileyhappy:

BK in 2008, after making very stupid financial decisions.

Barclay's Apple Financing Card ($6400) --- Capital One Quicksilver ($10,000)---GEMB CareCredit ($5700) --- AUFCU ($10000)--- Walmart ($5000)

FICO Scores: TU 735 EQ 709 EX 740 (Feb 2013, all pulled by lender)

Re: which tu model does barclays use?

To my understanding we can't purchase the tu04 model correct? The tu98 is sold here and the tu08 can be had from Walmart? Reason I ask cause down the road I'd like to app for the ring and i realize a 680 score isn't a shoe in but I would hate to app with a 700 score and they come back with a denial cause of a lower score

That's correct ~ you would have to get the TU04 score from a creditor.    Mortgage lenders almost exclusively use the FICO04 models.

Also there's a non-zero chance Barclay's will be credit card enhanced industry option anyway.

 

Generally speaking I think if your EQ and TU report look similar, and your EQ score here is above the typical underwriting requirement... and you have recent good history on your credit cards, you're probably going to be fine.  Certainly that's the way I'd look at it, Wallyworld TU is probably fine for this estimation too.

 

 

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 679, EQ 8 708, TU 711, EX 702* (07/14/14, EX older)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ '04 (01/01/15)
