These non-FICO scores don’t factor into that seemingly all-important trio of credit bureau numbers, but they do affect how credit issuers and contracts will be negotiated. Besides looking at credit histories to determine if a borrower is likely to be late or go bankrupt, credit histories allow companies to fine-tune their marketing to you, even if you’ve been strong-willed in the past:

Attrition-risk score: Attrition risk refers to the likelihood a user will stop using a card, and attrition-risk scores are typically used in combination with other scores to determine what to do next if you look ready to bolt. If your account generates a lot of revenue and is deemed at low risk for default or bankruptcy, for example, the issuer might aggressively try to keep your business by jacking up your credit limit, lowering your rate and pelting you with convenience checks. If your account isn’t that profitable or is deemed risky, on the other hand, the issuer might just let you go.
