The initial soft is the paranoia from card companies. They want to make sure that youre still good with your other creditors.

Too true!

 

With just about every new card I've gotten--especially during the rebuilding years--has softed me twice a month for 6 months.  Afterwards, they hardly soft you at all, other than to scan you for promos if you aren't opted out.
