WoW!  Did not know you could have a lot of inquires and still get approved.  I heard it brings down your credit score is that true?

Re: inquiries

inqueries are so stupid. i shopped for a car 2 years ago. i ended up running my credit twice at 2 dealers as a result. what non-sense, really....i couldnt get a true value unless i ran my credit and then i was stuck with 2 HPs. what a joke of a system (CB AND dealer wise)

..........

.......$23k....................$8k......................$2k

Re: inquiries

not to mention that adding a 3rd hp at another dealer prevented me from further shopping, thus potentially getting a better price.

Approved mine too but my first the Freedom was with 22,99%APR...that is insane with a 793 EQ at that time....the 2nd all the sudden got me 16K starting limit...so my internal score must have improved I guess Smiley Happy



I was always in $5K mode.. Lol!! 

May be we have BIG income difference, I suppose...


I think it is time that got me higher CL....apps in spree got me 2,5 for Discover, 4K Freedom, 5K Amex, 5K  Cap1 .....once I spaced out 3-6 months I got higher CLs and best terms. I am on a 6 months turn right now....will see if that plan will work for Sallie Mae in June. Cash+ I am going to attack once most inq have fallen off and before a new Chase app as this will be again a double pull for me....do not expect a miracle from Chase..ha ha ha
