YMMV is an abbreviation for “Your Mileage May Vary.” Basically, it means one person’s experience with a product may be different from another’s.
YMMV is often used in online forums to describe credit cards…
- Whose terms vary from cardholder to cardholder;
- That don’t have clear-cut approval requirements; or
- With offers that are available only for a limited time or to certain people.
YMMV is an informal term, however. And you are unlikely to see it on any credit card company websites.

Yeah, it's kind of a failsafe, "your mileage may vary". Just because something happened to them, doesn't mean it'll automatically happen to you.

YMMV means Your Mileage May Vary - Meaning that just because someones's credit score increased after completing a certain action your credit score may not be affected in the same way.
