Chase Checking HP?

Chase Checking HP?

So I recently came across a coupon to recieve $150 after opening a new Chase Checking account. At first I was ready to go in and open a new account, while still leaving my CU account open. I was wondering though, does Chase do a HP of your credit if you open a savings/checking account with them? If so, then forget it..

I opened my Chase account in 2009, I don't remember for sure but I believe they did a HP not to mention an inquiry on our wonderful friend ChexSystems...lol.

Re: Chase Checking HP?

Well I may go into a branch when I have time, and see if they can open it without a HP. I don't see why they would need to...

Employees are not always correct with this question. I do not see why any bank or credit union needs to to open an account but they do. I do not think it is a hard pull though. I opened one in 2010 and it was not on my reports when I looked earlier. I just opened one today so tomorrow I will check creditkarma and request an updated Experian report to see if they did. I already have two credit cards with them though so my identity is already known.

Go into a branch, look at the bankers' desks for signage. You should see at least FDIC, OFAC/Patriot Act, and if they check a credit bureau, a sign for whomever they pull...compliance my friends.

Re: Chase Checking HP?

They didn't do a HP on me. And I've gotten/received the $150 offer TWICE. You can do one per year.

 

But every bank does check ChexSystems/Qualifile.

They want to see if you have any past delinquencies with any other previous financial institutions.

No hard pull, just a run through Chex. Those tht report that they received a hard pull either a) knowingly or unknowingly had a banker who applied for a cc at the same time or b) opened an account a few years ago when Chase still offered an overdraft line of credit (they haven't offered them since 2009.)

Chase and the other national banks do not.

 

Credit Unions typically do because they're member owned: namely, they're only as strong as the members they have, and if you're a complete deadbeat, that just drags the membership pool down.  Whether they really should or not, I don't know: they can always do a pull for any sort of credit application; however, they all (or most) seem to do it for membership.  I don't see why they'd be remiss to let nearly anyone to put money into a share account, in fact I would think they encourage it but my EQ report shows a bunch of HP's from CU membership apps.

 

On the otherhand my wayward application to PSECU (didn't read the fine print, oopsie) resulted in a soft inquiry on EX, so maybe things are changing somewhat.
