It’s impossible to compile a list of cards that use TransUnion only. The credit bureau your report gets pulled from when you apply for a credit card depends on a variety of factors. Some issuers, according to credit blogs and forums, use certain bureaus more than others. But it’s far from a guarantee. Your location and random chance can play a role too. Plus, credit card companies often pull reports from two bureaus, or even all three. So in a sense, all credit cards use TransUnion.

It’s also worth noting that there are Capital One cards for every type of credit advertised on TransUnion’s website.

But you’re never guaranteed a certain credit bureau, and issuers aren’t keen to reveal who they usually pull.
