Looking for a new credit card

Ok, looking to possibly getting a new credit card. I currently have a USAA secured card $1250CL(3yrs excellent history), CapOne QSONE $1600CL(2yrs excellent history), DiscoverIT $3800CL(1.5yrs excellent history). 1yr mortgage(joint w/ wife), 3 joint auto loans with my wife, $9500/$8500/$32K, at least a couple years on all. Income is 5800/mo, no late payments in 3yrs+.
Scores:
FICO 8: 665EQ/651TU/668EX

I’m looking at either Chase Freedom Unlimited or Citi Double cash. What bureau and version do either of these pull? Or does any lender use bankcard enhanced versions? Because I like those sores a lot more!
Bankcard enhanced version 8: 675EQ/669TU/647EX

Bankcard enhanced versions 5/4/2:
703EQ/722TU/717EX

Obviously I like the last scores the best and would apply with a card lender that uses those versions before anyone else. What do y’all think is the best course of action?

Chase hits my Equifax

Citi hits my Transunion.

 

Of the two cards - benefits wise (and taking into consideration what you currently have), I would go with the Double Cash. I use my Freedom Unlimited over my DC but that is only because I transfer all the points to my Chase Sapphire.

Re: Looking for a new credit card

Is there a specific reason you want the Double Cash?

 

Synchrony’s PayPal Cashback earns the same 2% but doesn’t have the gimmicky 1% now and 1% later and no FTF. Plus it’s Sync so they are okay with less than stellar credit and the card has a lot of growth potential.

So are you saying they don’t use bankcard enhanced scores? not partial any to particular lender or card. Synchrony could be a possibility, but don’t use PayPal much at all.

Re: Looking for a new credit card

I agree with getting PayPal 2% as it has been great for me.  The only issue I have is the rate is basically usury, but don't keep a balance.

Re: Looking for a new credit card

Chase only pulled Experian when I applied for the Sapphire Preferred last September. When I got the credit card in the mail, there was included information about my credit score: 779 based on "Card Acquisition Risk Score V2." I'm not sure if this is a FICO Bankcard Score or one that's based on Chase's internal scoring system.

Re: Looking for a new credit card

So, I decided to go with a Capital One Venture card. I went to the pre-qualify page and was pre-qualified for the card. I decide to do the full application, and was approved for $12K limit! Yay! Scores they pulled were my mortgage enhanced scores: 686EQ 714TU 707EX
