What is the average Experian credit score?

Postby torreyha » Sun Oct 17, 2010 3:04 pm

Does anyone know what the average Experian credit score is? Mine is 718 and I would like to know how that compares to the other two bureaus. Do Experian scores tend to run low or high?

I don't know what the average Experian credit score is but I saw something in the news that the average FICO score has dropped by 10 points to 666.

That must not be a good sign, eh?

From the best of my knowledge the Experian score is called the "PLUS" score and runs up to 830 instead of FICO's 850.

I do not know what the average Experian credit score is but from what I have heard they tend to run much higher than FICO. I've heard stories of them running from 10 to 50 points higher.
