Just got my first Walmart TU score. Is it good score?

I just started building my credit from scratch 6 months ago and today for the

first time I got my free TU Walmart FICO score. It shows 714

 

how good is that? How accurate is this compared to what most lenders pull?

 

 


Starting Score: EX 734 TU 749
Current Score: EX 734 TU 749
Goal Score: EX 766 TU 770

That is AWESOME!!!!

 

At 714 your score won't be the deciding factor in credit approvals. Your short history is now the only thing stopping you but that will vary by lender.

 

Are you going to app for the AMEX Green or Gold in December?

Your score is insane.

 

Rebuilding from scratch 6 months ago, and you have a 714 FICO.   I would consider yourself extremely one of a kind.  I'm gonna guess your history wasn't that bad, and your scores werent THAT low.

 

I started at 522 TU FICO, 1.5 years ago, when I started my rebuilding process.  Had $27,000.00 in collections from 5 major CC banks.  Basically decided to stop paying for a 5 year period.  1.5 years later, my FICO (TU) is 645............ (and that's opening 4 new accounts, and paying on time).

 

You have it easy.

Score isn't everything. You can have an extremely thin file and get up to the 700s. Just because you have a decent score doesn't guarantee an approval for anything if your file is thin. 

 

but to OP, keep up the good work, seems like you're on the right track Smiley Very Happy
