Re: Which banks check credit before opening a new checking account?

If i'm not mistaken, I think all the big banks do a soft pull on the credit. I've never heard of a bank do a hard except in my experience.. PenFed and Charles Schwab.

IM not southern..but Wachovia here in AL pulls a hard for a checking. And so do most other major regional banks...BOA pulled a hard for me in NY.

If you're looking for a bank that won't do a hard pull, you would probably have the most luck with a small local/community bank.
