Turns out getting a FICO score with Discover it is conditional.
I didn't use my card in July so a statement didn't cut at the end of August.
I did an online chat with a rep to find out why my statement didn't cut at the end of August and was told:
"There is not a way for us to know [your FICO score] for August. I do apologize for that. your account was considered inactive at the time we attempted to pull your FICO® Credit Score. Your account is considered inactive when there are no purchase transactions, fees, interest charges, or payments on your account 30 days before we attempt to pull our FICO® Credit Score. If your account is considered inactive at the time we attempt to pull your FICO® Credit Score, there will not be a number given."
This was news to me and I found it very interesting.
I can't recall ever seeing a statement not cut due to inactivity. I've had cards still cut statements to at least show there was no activity, which would be a good thing, wouldn't you think?
Anyone ever experience this with other cards?
I guess it's a way to guarantee swipes.
