Re: Prime Cards that pull Transunion

I have to agree to woopah that it depends on where you live in the USA.  For me, here in Texas, Discover and Juniper pulled TU.  A good site to get an idea of who pulls TU in your state is http://www.whogavemecredit.com or you can go to http://www.financeglobe.com to get an idea of what score is needed for a particular card.  A word of caution with the last website, they tend to overestimate scores required for a particular card.  Good luck!

 

On a sidenote:  I hope I didn't violate any board rules by posting web links.  If so, please edit accordingily.

Re: Prime Cards that pull Transunion

Thanks guys for your help - I just applied for a Discover card and was approved with a 2500.00 limit!!

 

Woot Woot!

 

Now I have a prime card that hopefully I can better my score over the next year.

 

New question though, now that I have this, should I close my sub-prime card (Hooters) even though it is my second highest limit. I want to keep my Best Buy card and Target Visa card but they have limits of 650.00 or should I keep the Hooters card and keep enduring the monthly payments.

Re: Prime Cards that pull Transunion

Congrats on the Discover approval.  They're not so easy to get so you are doing something RIGHT . . Smiley Wink

 

As for Hooters, I've had the card for about 1.5 yrs. and it causes me no problems, sitting quietly with others in my sock drawer.  I only let it see sunshine long enough to buy like a newspaper or a smoothie about every 3 mos.  But closing it may affect your score since the CL will no longer be reporting.  Is there a balance on the card?  Are you planning to BT with the new Discover?  In any event, I vote for you to keep the card and the tradeline.  Especially if there is no fee involved.

 

What say you credit gurus?

On the other hand, I also live in Texas, & Juniper did NOT pull TU for me, despite many people swearing that they ALWAYS do.  Just FYI.  Smiley Happy

 

Edited to add:  Now that I think about it, neither did Discover.  Both of them pulled my EQ.
