Who is GE Capital Retail Bank (GECRB)?  I just read that's who this card is backed by.  Is this "old" GEMB or completely separate?  Any former names?

 

Sorry about the 3 HPs, geez.  That's a Cap One practice!



This is GEMB. They changed their name 10/1 of this year.

did you call to recon?


I have once so far but going to wait for the letter before I do it again... but I find GE impossible to get to underwriting or finding someone who can over ride a computer decision.

 

If anyone has a good number that they had success with I'm open arms!


1-866-634-8379

Called a couple weeks ago, asked for underwriting (existing card, but should be the same people).  Guy had my credit report in front of him and asked me a few questions and gave me my CLI.

 

Good luck!

Wow! 3 HP! I'd definitely try for a recon if at all possible. And if they won't approve you, maybe you can get to someone who will remove 1 or 2 of the hits. You can tell them that you authorized *one* inquiry and would not have applied if you had known that they would do all 3.

 

From everything I've read here (and my own limited experience), they usually pull TU; though I think recently someone did post here that they hit EQ instead. I wonder if they kept hitting your CR to try and get you approved. In any case, I would try a recon and/or getting 1 or 2 removed. You didn't authorize 3 hits, after all. And it can't hurt to try.


The OP did authorize them to pull all three when they apped.   They might remove one or two as a good will gesture but I wouldn't count on it.

 

OP:  Sorry to hear, that really sucks.  I would recon recon and recon some more. What does your scores and reports look like?  Ever had a GEMB account before?

Re: BLEEP.... GE Amazon Store Card IINQ!!

I'm not aware that a bank has to tell you theyre going to pull all 3. If you were new to the credit world. You wouldnt know Cap1 pulls 3 on anything.

Re: BLEEP.... GE Amazon Store Card IINQ!!

I called that number and it says corporate? Did you get transferred from there to right department?

I will have to wait until Monday anyway for them to be open most likely... but I am done with this especially now seeing all 3 pulled!!!

 

To other poster, they do not have to tell you what report they are pulling and how many of them and usually even when you ask the reps have no idea... I actually get told 95% of the time if I did call and ask that we pull all 3 and actually very few banks pull multiple reports on a regular basis.

 

1. Amex until recently was always EX but in the last year or so we have seen a little TU action if you were on the border of approval

2. Cap1, we always knew was all 3

3. Navy is either EQ or TU, thought I figured out which loan apps pulled which but that was thrown out window when they pulled EQ for both CC and Auto.

Fico Scores: EQ- 668 DCU., TU 704 Best Buy, EX 700 Chase (2/5/15)
