Re: Citi hard pull !! damn

When was the last time you received an increase from them?

..and did you know your scores prior to hitting the Heart button?

For me Citi has always been a hard pull..... I never noticed, and have 6 HPs on my report for CLIs.  Live and learn!

Re: Citi hard pull !! damn

Are you sure they did a HP? I requested one when my account wasn't eligible and they said they pulled EQ but never did. The letter I got stated that I was denied because my account wasn't eligible; it did not cite my credit report. I never got an alert from my monitoring service, and I pulled my monthly 3 in 1 credit report and there was no inquiry.

You may have escaped a HP. YMMV, of course.
