Rooms to Go Financing Credit Question

I wanted to get some furniture from Rooms to Go and help build a little more credit. Does anyone know if their financing (through GE) is a hard inquiry or soft? Also, any information about your experience would be super helpful and appreciated!

 

Thanks

Re: Rooms to Go Financing Credit Question

AFAIK, all financing offers from GECAP or GECRB are HP.  Unfortunately, I don't have experience with their specific financing or pricing; however, you can get some general information from their T&C here > https://www.gecrbterms.com/gecrbterms/pdf/182-023-01.pdf

Re: Rooms to Go Financing Credit Question

If you app for the RTG card dont be dumb like me and put in a low number like $2k because if you ask later for CLI its a hp. I should have said like $4-5k when oppening the card.



Mouse over for CL

Re: Rooms to Go Financing Credit Question

Ok, forgive my ignorance but I don't know what "HP" means or "AFAIK". Also, does CLI mean credit line? Sorry, I'm trying to improve my credit and get some furniture at the same time. So you recommend to put more on the card they offer? I wasn't sure if they offered a card or if they just bill me each month for financing. How does the process go? I go in, pick out a furniture set - let's say for like $1,200 - and then I ask for financing and the lady sets me up and then what? Sorry for the questions but my credit is starting to shape up and I really need to improve it quickly so I figured getting a line of credit from somewhere would help.

 

Thanks

Nah, nothing to forgive.  We all get caught up in forum lingo.

Anyway in particular:

 

HP = hard pull or hard inquiry - this type scores negatively against you for one year vs. a soft pull (SP) which does not.

AFAIK = as far as I know

CLI = credit limit increase
