Might as well use Credit Karma and see your Equifax details at the same time.

After CSR they afford to pay for a real FICO.

Lol, they won't be able to afford it until next year when they collect everyone's AF.

Very lame to offer a score that they won't even use in their lending decisions.

Especially considering the other 3 major banks giving a score use real FICO.

Citi gives you a FICO, but it's a bankcard enhanced score.

Unless Chase gives a TU 04 FICO in the future, it's not really a big deal.  I would expect that they would give an EX FICO 8 since that is what they give with the Slate card.

It's already possible to get 2 of 3 mortgage FICOs and all FICO 8 scores for free though:

That's a Vantage skore.
Sorry for starting a new thread, Dan. Didn't realize was posted - thought it would've been on DDMS if was here but now I know why.

Mendelssohn, by Vantage score you mean it's FAKO? Discover Scorecard is better?

If it doesn't say FICO®,  then it's a FAKO.   And if it does say FICO® than you need to figure out which version it is so you can assess/appraise it's significance.

Mendel supplied a link that lists many issuers provided score types.
