EX by a far margin for me.
If we never set higher goals we would never get as far.

Re: which credit beaureu is the hardest

All you posters with lower EX scores, do you have some sort of feel for why they are lower than the others? (Lotsa inqs, BK's, whatever) I don't know why EX likes me so far, but I'm pitifully grateful, and I'd like to keep things smooth with them. You know my theories about EQ and lates and relatively short history.

I only have a 3 point spread between high and low but there are a few more nqs on my EX than on TU and EQ. I have 5 on EX 1 on TU and 0 on EQ. All my reports are nearly identical. There is a stray old closed account here and there that is picked up on one not another etc etc.

EX just hits me harder for inqs. It's probably the type of inqs but that is why my score is lower on EX.

Re: which credit beaureu is the hardest

I find EQ is tough on me. Followed by EXP. I guess TU likes me the best


10/01/07:
TU: 676
EXP: 665
EQ: 633 :smileysad:

Re: which credit beaureu is the hardest

I thought EX and AmEx were cozy--why wouldn't EX report?

They both blame the other. What I really want are the the two old ones to report and just forget about the blue card. I have the feeling if the two oldest report, my scores will go up quite a bit...just in time before I start apping again for a mortgage.

Does this mean no Guam relocation?

Re: which credit beaureu is the hardest

This may help as an overall difference...

VantageScore vs. FICO score

The VantageScore is based on six variables, versus the FICO score's five variables. Here's a comparison of the two:

 Vantage score

Payment history                          32%

Uttilization                                 23%

Balances                                   15%

Depth of credit                           13%

Recent credit                             10%

Available credit                            7%

Total                                        100%

 FICO score

Payment history                         35%

Length of credit history               15%

Amounts owed                           30%

Types of credit uses                   10%

New credit                                 10%

 Total                                       100%


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.
