A credit score is a number between 300–850 that depicts your “creditworthiness.” Your score is more than just a number. It’s a tool for lenders, rental and insurance agents, utility companies, etc., to determine your eligibility and rates. The higher the score, the better you look to potential lenders.
Credit Union of Denver understands the importance of having good credit, and one of the ways we’re here to help our members succeed is by offering Credit Score & More – a free credit score management tool available within Online Banking and Mobile Banking.
Within this tool you’ll be able to:
- View your current credit score (TransUnion Vantage Score)*
- Review your entire credit bureau report
- Simulate Your Credit Score – see how taking certain actions could impact your score
- Dispute your report through TransUnion
- Compare rates and look for opportunities to save money
- Monitor changes to your report by Opting-in and receive email alerts regarding:
- Credit score updates
- Credit ID alerts & notifications
- Outdated/inactive score info
Additionally, Credit Score & More contains helpful articles and videos powered by SavvyMoney. Gain insight on establishing or rebuilding your credit, understanding your score, and methods of reducing debt.
*When viewing your credit score, Credit Score & More does what is referred to as a “soft credit pull”, which will not affect your score. Unlike when you apply for loans or have creditors pull your credit, those actions are recorded as a “hard pull” which will impact your score. Tip: if you have too many inquiries in a short timeframe, the greater the impact on your score.

There are three major credit-reporting bureaus - Equifax, Experian, and Transunion - and two scoring models - FICO or Vantage Score - that determine credit scores. Financial institutions use different bureaus, as well as their own scoring models. Over 200 factors of a credit report may be considered when calculating a score and each model may weigh credit factors differently, so no scoring model is completely identical. No matter what credit bureau or credit scoring model is used, consumers do fall into specific credit ranges: Excellent 781–850, Good 661-780, Fair 601-660, Unfavorable 501-600, Bad is Below 500.
