Credit Optics Score??

Can anyone give me more info on a"Creidit optics" score? DW apped for and was denied an Alaska Airlines CC. The letter said her Credit Optics score was 484, range of 1-1000. Her EQ on myFici is 683.

Any input?
Anyone know other banks using this scoring?

The Alaska Airlines card is issued by Bank of America.  I think it is a Signature only card, which might mean qualifying for a $5K CL as well.


Starting Score: 693 TU FICO, 679 EQ FICO
Current Score: FICO 8 = 821 EQ, 827 TU, 811 EX (7/15); mortgage FICO= 758 EQ5, 797 TU4, 748 EX2 (7/15)
Goal Score: 750+, but shooting for the 800's
Hyatt Visa Sig ($23K), Amex BCP (24.8K), BofA Travel Rew Sig (17.5K), B&N World MC (22.3K), Amex RP Gold (NPSL w/ S&T), Cash+ Sig (20K),United Mil+ExpSig (16.3K), FNBO Visa (13.1K), Hilton Surpass (10K), Freedom Visa Sig (8.6K), Disc It (10.4K), Citi Dia Pref MC (3.7K),Sam's MC (10K), Wally (7.5K), JCP(5.3K), Costco (2K)

It appears to be an additional layer of scrutiny on top of traditional credit scores and reports.

I know it is a BofA card, but I have never heard of the optics score. The sig card is $5k min Cl, but they have lower tier cards as well

Correct.  It is not used as a replacement for a FICO score, it is an additional program on top of FICO, most likely weighing certain factors more heavily, or placing more emphasis on certain trends.

I'd venture and say that it also includes stuff that FICO does not like income, residency (e.g. rent vs. buy), DTI, employment history, etc.

Re: Credit Optics Score??

If you really read this companies website, well for me anyway, i came away with the impression that this is one scary company. They remind me of the work that SAIC does in relationship tracking of persons of interest to the governement (supossed terrorists and everyone they know, talk to, email, etc) this company is doing the same thing it looks like Especially their databases of your ip addresses, and your known relationships. I mean, i would really like to see just how deep they go in that. A real time mapping of my relationships with other people is something that would make even george orwell turn in his grave. Or maybe i just have a tad more paronioia than most.

FIA Credit Services uses it. I ran into this problem applying for a card at Regions Bank.
