The numbers are useless but the alerts are usefull. Such notices as score change, HP notices, and any change in insurance risk evaluation. Not the amounts just the notice of change.

  Insurance company (car, house, etc) does use your insurance risk score to calculate your rate.

Bah, if chase uses vantage id be thrilled. My vantage on ck is in the low-mid 700s

 

Not to be a bubble-burster but remember that the Vantage Score scale goes from 501 - 990.  A bit different than the FICO.

 

Mine has been hanging around the 750s for the past few months too.

Starting score: EQ FICO 8 702 (1/1/2012)
Current scores: EQ FICO 8: 763 / TU FICO 8: 760 / EX FICO 8: 765

Wallet: Chase Freedom 12K - Discover More 12K - Walmart 1K - Capital One MC 1K

Re: Credit Karma Transrisk vs. Vantage

Not sure Vantage is any good at all, got a 71 point raise because I lowered my UTL by $41 and then a 65 point drop for some other reason.. 141 points of  movement in a single week and I have a very thick file that should be fairly stable,and nothing major happen, no new baddies showing up just paying bills and various cards reporting. 

 

 


Cards: Chase Southwest 20k & CSP 10k & Freedom 6.6k & Amtrak 4.6k, FNBO DISC 14.9k Oregon Duck 5k, & AMEX BCP 15k & Hilton Surpass 7.5k & Delta Gold 6k & Zync NPSL, Sally Mae5k Sams Club MC 10k, Paypal Extras MC 6k, CapOne QS 2.5k, QS 750, Amazon 3.9k, Walmart 4.5k, Citi Simplicity 7k, HHonors Gold 1k (moved 5k CL to Simplicity), Discover IT 6.5k and a nice stack of store cards.
