The purpose of the link is not to calculate the score. but that  FICO does  look at bank card(s) in the score calculation. The other point is too many bank cards also does not help your score.  There are score reasons in the FICO score model related to bank cards. The other misconcpetion is that FICO differenctiate between lenders IE prime and sub prime. The only exception to that is consumer finance companies.


I agree that FICO definitely looks at bankcards but the part of your post though that I was specfically talking about was this: FICO does differeniate between bankcards

 

I'm wondering what you mean by that. A bankcard is a bankcard.

 

Pardon me for my confusion.
