myFICO vs DISCOVER Equifax FICO score

I had applied for DISCOVER card and today got a letter from them with a score they pulled was 653 in a range of 300 - 850; while my EQ score here on myFICO is 630. Are they different version/model of FICO? can they be so different from each other or myFICO just not updating my scores? This credit score monitoring is so confusing.

 

 


Starting Score: EQ: 499
Current Score: EX: 659, EQ: 622, TU: 659
CHASE Freedom: 1K, CHASE Sapphire: 5K, Barclay Arrival+: 5K, CapOne: 3K,CapOne: $3K, AMEX BCE: 3.9K, AMEX BCE: 1K, AMEX Platinum, Discover: 8.7K, DISCOVER IT: 2K, CITI Diamond:2.8K, Southwest Premier: 2K, Express:1.3K, Paypal: 3.6K, Amazon: 2.5K, Macys: 7.6K, Walmart: 1.5K, BestBuy: 1.5K, Lowes: 6K, HomeDepot: 3K

Nope both EQ. I had originally thought the myfico on here was Ex which is why I put that originally. I edited my post after I found my mistake.

Yes, there are different models of FICO. Keep I mind, the CS is a snapshot of your cr at that moment. Inq's, bal changes etc can and will affect your CS.

Re: myFICO vs DISCOVER Equifax FICO score

In my case both Equifax too. I was talking about scorewatch which is lower than DISCOVER pulled score. While Experian scores are same everywhere. American Express & Bank Of America both pulled same score that was shown here. Experian is 08 version i guess while i think EQ score is the older 04 version which probably DISCOVER is not using anymore.

@Lexie... I understand Credit Scores change but only once in a day. They both pulled different scores on same day.
