App spree aftermath - who pulled what

I just checked my reports today, curious to see who pulled which bureaus after yesterday's app spree. I was surprised to see that Citi pulled both EQ and EX! While I'm not thrilled about taking more than one hit per card, I'm still so over the moon happy about the approval that I'm not going to complain. Inqs fade and fall off, but my plan is for the card to stay.

 

As for the rest, Discover pulled TU, BoA pulled EX and WF pulled EX. So, that's three pulls on EX. That gives me whopping 7 on EX, with three of them falling off between now and the spring. It's really starting to look like I'm done and getting ready to head back to the garden.


Current Scores: EQ 775 (03/04/2014), EX 756 (03/01/2014), TU 760 (03/01/2014)

The garden is the safest place. Its like the warning about sitting in the front seat on the visor in your car. "The back seat is always the aafedt place" xD

Re: App spree aftermath - who pulled what

Out of curiosity Tinu, I'm surprised you didn't apply for an Amex revolver with your scores and your history on your Green, and while I don't know the full reward structure on the rest of your cards, I thought one of the BCE/P line would've fit in well?

 

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 673, EQ 8 707, TU 720, EX 702* (09/02/14, EX older)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ '04 (01/01/15)

Because it's August. If I do decide to try for a BCE, it would be in January for maximum backdating.
