Best store card to open to boost credit score?

Postby GoCreditGo! » Thu Feb 13, 2014 11:13 am

Is there any one store credit card that does a better job at reporting to credit agencies than others?

...That would be a no.

They're all going to report every month on/around your statement being issued.
Citi Forward ($10.1K), AmEx Blue Cash Everyday ($30K), Chase Freedom ($12.4K), Discover it ($5.5K), Barclaycard Arrival ($12.5K), L.L. Bean Visa ($5K). FICO 806 (TU), 812 (EQ), 806 (EX).

Store credit card and "boost credit score" do not belong in the same sentence.

I think what he might mean is that all places are the same and no one has priority on boosting your score..
