Going on an "app spree" questions

[ Edited ]

Is there any benefit of applying for multiple cards at once? Does the # of inquiries look smaller since I would be submitting several applications at once?

 

EDIT: I meant the # of inquiries that show up before they pull my credit not after. sorry for the confusion

 

Thanks,

 

I also have another thread open regarding student loans and how they report if anybody could help me.

I think that they are all counted as separate apps, but on the bright side - they will all fall of your Fico score at the same time next year Smiley Wink

When it comes to inquiries  being scored as one, thats only when rate shopping for morgage or auto loan.

 

Most people submitt multiple cc applications at once to try and have the system not see all the inquiries after each other and if approved they age together.



Mouse over for CL
FICO EQ (670) 9/6, TUwalmart (725) 11/4, Discover FICO (725) 11/19, AMEX EX Pull (728) 11/29
GOAL: 750 with all

I understand that but when the companies are looking at my credit file will they see that I have inquiries from the other credit card companies that I submitted applications to only minutes apart from each app?

You can try, but credit pulls are instant. Alternatively, you can try picking different lenders that are known to pull different reports so you don't get tons of inquiries on one report.

Re: Going on an "app spree" questions

To clear up any misunderstanding as fast as you hit send the INQ shows up on your CR...The computer trick does not work..CB's have faster computers LOL

Yes other lenders will see that you had other INQ's that day..This is why we tell people to select different cards that pull different CB's so A won't see B or C

Make sense?

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: Going on an "app spree" questions

ya, theres no 100 percent proof that my theory works. Ive tried it but I was most likely going to be approved no matter what for the 2 cards I tried it for considering my 0 utilization and high score at the time. but as always ymmv
