76. Discover Card FICO score and Credit Card Features?

I noticed my Discover card now has a FICO score when I login to view my statement. It shows a credit score in the 700’s. Which is pretty good. Anyone else notice this? Perhaps this is a new trend with credit card companies. 

Apparently this is pulled from the TransUnion credit bureau and is relatively accurate. This is a free service for Discover card members. This measurement doesn’t have any negative impact on a member’s TransUnion bureau score.
From the Discover website :

Why are you putting my FICO® Credit Score on my statement?
Simply put, we want to be your favorite card.  So we're always looking for new ways to treat you right. And now that means a FICO® Credit Score from TransUnion on your monthly statement to help you stay on top of your credit and avoid surprises.  All for free, and with no impact to your credit score

Where did you get this score?
We partnered with TransUnion, one of the three major credit bureaus, and FICO® to provide your FICO® Credit Score on your statement for free.
Perhaps this is a new trend with credit card companies? What features are most important to you on your credit card? Leave a comment!
