aclove404's review: Callout Comment I was applying for this card to transfer some of my balances. I hit the submit app button 4800 credit line. They used experian and my score is a 640! My biggest credit line to date.

Remarks You must have deserved the card or you would not have been approved for it. I wonder where you are getting your experian score from though. I doubt it is 640.

If you go to the experian site and pull your score, it may be 640 but that is NOT your FICO score.

My experian score on the experian site is 743, yet when I pull it as a FICO score on MyFICO.com it comes in at 809. Your scores are probably higher then you think they are.

My mom has this card and they are very generous with their CLI! That's regular (HSBC) not Orchard (LOL) !

Remarks Porgy, whats the difference between your regular credit score and your FICO score? I always get confused. When you apply for credit which one does the company look at?
