Congrats! See my post to your other thread about getting increases. If you do it through the online account, it will result in a hard pull, so always call # on the back of your card and follow the prompts. It should all be automated and will be a soft.

I'm not sure, but a have read a few posts about this a few months back and people were complaining they got hard pulls on EQ with using the online account request. I have tried a couple of times to get an increase with the automated number and it tried to send me to a CSR. If you have one available for a soft pull, it will tell you how much and to press 2 to accept it, or another number if you want the CSR to pull for a higher amount. Or 3 to decline, yeah right!  I pressed 2 :smileyvery-happy:

Shell does a HARD INQUIRY for cli requests online!!!!  Lesson Learned!  Always come here for advice FIRST!!!!
 
Since you've got the Shell...go for the Sunoco.
