I am noticing some people reporting GE doing hard pulls for some of their cards, and my usaa credit check monitoring says GE did a hard pull on TU recently. I was under the impression that GE did soft pulls only. Has something changed, or are the soft pulls only for CLI?

 


The cards are always hard to my knowledge; credit limit increases are soft pulls. People have reported that Care Credit is the only card that will always be a hard pull to increase the limit, maybe because it has a higher risk of default?

 

Maryland/Michigan

 

Experian:

FIA - initial

Chase

American Express

Macys American Express - initial

PNC

 

Transunion:

Barclays

Sallie Mae

GE Capital Retail Bank - initial, soft for credit limit increases

FIA - credit limit increases

Elan Financial Services

Chase - credit limit increases

Discover - credit limit increases (soft)

 

Equifax:

Chase - rare

Macys - initial, soft for credit limit increases

Macys American Express - credit limit increases (soft)

Discover - initial

 

I do wonder why some lenders differ while some do not. American Express almost exclusively looks at Experian, as does Macys for the American Express card. Barclays and GE Capital Retail Bank also almost exclusively use Transunion for their reports. Some lenders say it is totally random and they can not control it. Chase and Discover let you tell them which bureau you would like them to look at.

Looking for clarrification on this statement.  Are you saying that, if I app over the phone with Chase,the CSR will ask which CR I want them to pull?

Well with Discover, I had Equifax frozen because they kept putting bankruptcy  and some such nonsense that was not mine. She said she could pull another bureau and out of curiosity I asked if they always did it and she said you can always request a bureau for them to look at.

 

With Chase, I asked them before the submitted the application if they could look at a certain bureau and they said okay. I have never had someone from Chase insist on a certain one. I only care because I don't want a lot of inquiries on one report.

Re: Credit Pulls!!!

Interesting thread!  What does Citi pull for credit limit increases?

 

Interestingly, I've noticed periodic checks from Citi and Chase on all three reports.  These are the "account maintenance" checks that I have no control over.

Chase Freedom: $1500, Citi Diamond Preferred: $3000, Barclays: $3900, Chase Disney Visa: $1500, Chase Southwest Signature: $5000, Citi TY Preferred: $3000, Cap One Platinum: $1750, Cap One Platinum Rewards: $2500, Orchard Bank: $900, Kay Store Card: $4500
