Different credit scores on myFICO than on a credit card denial letter?

I recently applied for the Barclaycard Rewards Card for Average Credit and was denied. In the letter I received in the mail it said my Experian score is 648 but my Experian score on myFICO as of yesterday (03/19/14) was 667. Which is the accurate score? Theres no way my score increased due to a hard pull in 7 days.

Both scores are accurate.  Lenders can use different models ie bankcard enhanced for their UW.

The EX on this site is EX 08.

 

I don't know which version of EX Barclay pulled, but if it's not EX 08, then it likely won't match.

 

Or if there is a time lag between the two score calculations, then they may not match.

 


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.
