I could be wrong, but I think it's according to the Ashley account that you have with GE Capital vs GE Credit Bank (the same, yet different). The reason I mention this is I was approved for a PC Richard account last night & my account was registered online at www.gogecapital.com - I can see other consumer cards they carry listed there, but I hadn't checked my Experian yet....nor has CreditKarma alerted me  !

Looks like THERE is a difference...namely this website does not list any retail/store cards I.e. Walmart, Penneys . Ashley furniture is listed here like the OP mentioned.  There definitely appears to be two different divisions that pull different CRA's.  :smileyfrustrated:

Exactly ! I was surprised to learn of it a few weeks ago, but I'm happy that I could share it for others to know there *is* a difference. But years ago, they used to have a visa/mastercard division & don't think it's still around.

Re: So I guess GECRB pulls Experian now

None of GEs furniture store cards are soft pulls. I learned my lesson when I requested an increase on my Living Spaces card to 8,500. I didn't even need the additional credit. I just asked b/c I could and they pulled TU report. I haven't even bothered to request a limit increase on Ashley b/c I simply don't need it.

The truth is out there...
FICO scores: 764 (EQ) 732 (EX) 757 (TU) 9/14 | Goal score: 750+ (all 3)
Tradelines: Capital One QS NPSL (5.0k) | Discover IT (6.0k) | Walmart Mastercard (5.0k) | Chase Freedom NPSL (7.3k) | Citi Simplicity (9.3k)

thanks for letting me know. I just learned the hard way too. I thought it was like the other store cards. I just requested an increase for my American Signature card and it was a soft pull through Comenity aka WFNNB.
