Didn't seem to hurt me during my recent app sprees.. Never declined due to Inq, at least according to denial reasons..

Good Luck!!

Let me guess ... you didn't apply for any Barclays card? Smiley Tongue

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: Inq

So OP yeh i have too many hehe. But i guess it depends on credit file how many accts, ages of accounts, income, so many variables.. Because I have been approved for some nice cards in the past few months believe it or not.. but now put that many INQ on a younger file and im sure its bad to have more than 6 INQ

Re: Inq

    Non of the credit cards I have applied for have been needs. I didn't need any of them. I just got them to help improve my credit. I am not even sure exactly why i am improving my credit. i have no plans to buy a house or to borrow money. I am raising my credit soley to improve my self esteem. So all my apps have been wants not needs. I have basically no use for any of my credit lines. I really don't like credit cards at all and would much prefer to pay cash or use a debit card all the time. However as I have learned from research credit is important and someday I may need it for something and just incase I do, i have gotten 4 credit cards which I don't use other than as a strategy to improve my credit score.

You answered it! Smiley Tongue

You might just plan to buy a house or finance a car someday. You never know.

Besides, properties are good investments.
