How many INQ is too many for Amex BCE?

And do they count less after 6 months or only after a year?

Against your FICO, 1 year. Too many depends on your cr.

It all goes by how your "thick" (or thin) your credit report is.  You can have 15 hard pulls but if you have 20 years of solid credit data, it won't even be a factor in the FICO algorithm.  If you have 2 hard pulls in a year and a year of credit data, you will have "too many inquiries"...

Right.  As always, it's not just one variable.
