Wells Fargo free FICO after app update

Updated my WF app on my iPhone just now, and when I signed on, there's a new option to view my free FICO score. I have a Cash Back Visa card with them.

 

It's a nice addition, which I don't think I had access to before, but it's not displaying FICO 8, but instead FICO Bankcard Score 2. So far I can only retreive this option in the app and not on the desktop site.

Yeah; though the TU 08 scores were released before FICO Open Access as an actual TU product apparently; everyone else is just using whatever they are pulling for AR's.  Strange to see WF use FICO Risk Model v2 Bankcard, but hey, not like their CC division is precisely market relevant.

I seen this today as well. I noticed that you can see scores that were generated before March as well.

Appreciate the heads up OP.

 

Have not been using the WF ap, downloaded and logged in.  Got the Fico and it shows scores for the previous 12 months.

 

This particular Fico model scores me 30 points less than Fico 08.  Hate that!

 

 

EX FICO 08 772 - EQ BCE 08 790 - TU FICO 08 772 - limits 142k - util 0%

That's kinda awesome though for this sort of thing; don't think any other lender has disclosed their prior pulls.  Not sure how relevant that is for many people but I would've been interested to see the data if I had an account with them over the past year as my CR has gone through a number of non-trivial changes.

Re: Wells Fargo free FICO after app update

I love that they aren't showing FICO 8.  I can get those elsewhere.  Lets me track progress on other scores w/o pulling a new 3B.

 

Start (3/14): EX:614 TU:619 EQ:630 · Current: EQ:748 TU:748 EX:734 · Util 19% · Goal: break 760, util 9% · Gardening until 1/2020
Capital One QS WMC:8.5k; V1 VS:10k· Chase Freedom VS:6k · Discover IT:6k · Home Depot:8k · Kohls:3k · WF Rewards:12.5k · Amex BCP:4.9k

I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'wouldn't it be much worse if life *were* fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them?' So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe.

I definitely would love to see the previous months too. Nice festure and thinking on their part.
