Who does BOFA pull?

I live outside of Philadelphia. I am thinking about adding a secured card  using BOFA. I am wonder which report they would use. My Tu is like out of control with stupid inquiries...EQ has none. EX has 2.

 

Please let me know and thanks.

Bofa  normally pulls  EX  and   they pull  TU to unsecure  cards and  give  CLIs    that has been my experience and  also   what I have observed from anecdotal  evidence on the boards

When I apped with BoA, they pulled EX. I live Hawaii. Hopefully, some forum members from your neck of the woods will chime in.

I'd guess an EX pull, but you never know... (I'm in SE PA as well)

Hawaii. How nice. Where the heck did I go wrong! Smiley Sad  I live in the City of Brotherly SHOVE! Smiley Happy

 

I can't imagine being declined for a secured card...i just didn't want that pesky inquiry....

Re: Who does BOFA pull?

Well, I live in Utah - here they pulled Equifax. 

 

(Edited to remove specific websites - sorry -- I thought I learned about them here.)  Maybe Google for more info on which CRA's are pulled by different CC's as well - every bit of dependable info is helpful.

 

Hope I'm not in trouble (often happens, but usually for giving candy to my cute grandchildren) (before dinner).

 

DH was approved for $4,000 CL, decreased to $500 when checked on available increase (before card arrived).  He actually has done well with Kroger ($6,000 to $10,000) and CareCredit ($8,000 to $11,500) making the same phone call.  BofA behaved very differently than the other chaps.  Hope I like these guys.  And hope you do, too, if you app.

EX in FL.

 

No, you're not supposed to mention those two sites. One of them is very out of date/unreliable anyway.

Oh!  I'll edit my post immediately.  Even the out of date one has been somewhat helpful to me Smiley Wink.

Re: Who does BOFA pull?

The problem with the out of date stuff is that it is highly unreliable. You can use "WGMC" or "CB" and that's about it. No URL's or links for those two.
