I use to receive my monthly "Plus Score's" VIA CreditSecure from AMEX, I found it to be pretty accurate to my actual FICO score. Cancelled the service due to AMEX increasing the price from $9.99 to $14.99 currently. Now i just purchase my credit score through FICO twice a year, for I'm 30yrs old and CHEAP!!:smileylol:

Ty for your in put. I am planing to app for BCE in early 2013. I just hope my score will be good enough. Just PIF my Citi card, after the statement update in early December, my score should have another big jump. going from 15% util to about 8% util. No late or baddie. aaoa about 3 years. I have the Green from 10/12.

 

What are my chances?

I just read it, $14.99 for 2 reports every 30 days. $25 might be a better deal. :smileysurprised:

Based upon your "CreditSecure" Plus score's and the time frame at which u plan on opening your AMEX BCE, I would say your chances r very good! I bet once u open/start using your BCE u will probably hardly use the green, b/c no matter how much u would use your AMEX green, u will never break even in regards to the $95 AF

That is exactly what I was thinking. I am putting the re-occured creditsecure monthly on my green, just to show activity. Once I get the BCE, it will be my main card along with Freedom, and Citi Dividend.

Re: Amex CreditSecure - Opinion?

I have been using Amex CreditSecure for many years and have been a very happy customer. Once I started pulling from myFico the scores have always been within 5 points, so it seems pretty accurate in my case.

Starting Score: EQ 717 EX 724 TU 736
Current Score: EQ 816 EX 780 TU 823
App free since 4/11/13

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
