PENFED CLI

Hello All,

 

I have tried asking this question a couple times but no answer, so I thought let me try again through a new post. My PENFED card (VISA cashback) just became one year old (09/09/2010)and I was wondering if I could get a CLI. Does anyone know if this will be a soft pull or a hard pull?

 

I also have their AMEX, which will be one year in November. I have always PIF except a couple months left 50-100 bucks. VISA is at 2500 and AMEX is at 5k. Scores in the siggy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Re: PENFED CLI

I requested a cli when my account reached one year--it was a hard pull

 

I had heard of the "pre-approvals", but according to a few PenFed csrs, those are now less abundant than before.

Re: PENFED CLI

If u get preapproval - no hard pull.

Definitely hard pull.

 

 

If you are on the market for an additional credit product (card/loan), you can use that same hard pull for those.

Apparently some members never receive them, for whatever reason.
