Now that I have a Score of 828...

I have reached a magical plateau of 825+. I realize that the perfect score of 850 is a myth and overall 825 is in reality about as high as most folks can go. My question is now that I'm a platinum credit risk what benefits do I have? I see no advantage in rates of a score above 775 and I'm not currently in the market for a home or car. I don't receive any solocitations (a good thing), but at the same time I'm curious if you folks sell or give out the list of 800+ clients for premium offers. I guess now that I have perfect credit I'd like to be rewarded in the manner of a limited amount of special offers, free trips to timesharing ect. Please LMK your opinion.

CAre to answer my question....Do you sell or provide lists of 800+ or 825+ FICO scores to high-end companies for Premium offers? TY

I don't think they provide list to anyone.  The creditors submit their requirements and a list is generated based on that.  However, with scores that high, you really don't need preapproval do you?  It seems any card you apply for you should walk away with in 60 secs with online approval.

Mr 800 (or should that be Mr 828?),
Brammy's right that Fair Isaac doesn't provide such lists.  And, from what I've seen, it seems to be true that there really aren't any additional benefits to having a 800+ or a perfect score, which is why I'm always amazed at the lengths some folks will go to toward achieving such high scores.

Once you eclipse 720 you are elite in the eyes of lenders...

Once you eclipse 720 you are elite in the eyes of lenders so there are no other magic thresholds that you will pass next. For your 800+ score you will get excellent rates for whatever you buy and a big old bucket of pride! :-)

For those over 800: did you have to have a mortgage with many years of perfect record?

Totally correct. From my perspective, I was so utterly ashamed of my credit rating, being denied for just about anything in the card world, running to rescue losing my home and no lender would touch me in default, that I made it a discipline to get out of this mess. Needless to say, today, with my scores, I do not need the credit anymore, but I have restored my pride and confirmation, that I am worth something in the credit universe.
