Re: American Express Delta pulled all 3?!

When I applied for the PRG last November, they pulled all 3 for me. I was reading on another forum that if your history is less then one year old or you are a borderline approval, they will pull all 3.

Re: American Express Delta pulled all 3?!

It seems it should be much more common for everyone to pull all three.  I assume most have found that the incremental cost isn't worth it (you catch X% of the bad cases from just one report or something).  But it still seems strange, a small gamble by the issuer that there isn't bad info (or just lots of inqs) on one of the unpulled reports.

Re: American Express Delta pulled all 3?!

Yes, perhaps it should be more common. But I also wonder if the negative point of view of the customer is taken into consideration. With our subset of the population a triple pull is frowned upon, so take that for what you will. The other aspect might have to do with credit bureau contracts where an issuer signs deals with certain bureaus to provide analytical services. It would be difficult and expensive to get the same service from a second or third bureau at the same time. I don't know all the details here, but this must be part of the equation.
