I'm in the garden, but I keep getting inquiries on my report...

The last day of my app spree was 11/24/12. Two inquiries have shown up since then. I did apply for those cards in the beginning of November, but is it normal for inquiries to show up weeks later? Credit Karma is my only reference.... Also, does it mean I have to start my gardening date over???? Woman FrustratedWoman Mad

What are the inquires from ? Are your CC co. checking up on you with a new hard pull or is it just the inquiry (original showed up late)

This may just be that CK has a delay in sending you alerts.


I use USAA credit monitoring and it shows my inquiry alerts a few days later but then when I click on the inquiry it gives me thae actual inquiry date from when my credit was pulled.

 

This may be normal, just my experience

GECRB Old Navy and Toys R Us. I have neither. So it's the original inquiry. I applied for both around 11/11/12. Toys R Us showed up a few days ago and Old Navy showed up today.

I hope it was just a delay. My experience with Credit Karma is that the inquiries would show up the next day with the update. And the thing with the Toys R Us inquiry, I got the denial email 2 days after the pull. That card was one of the first cards I applied for. Another thing that I'm afraid of is that I heard Barclay is weird about inquiries after opening an account. I don't want them to close my account for those inquiries. I love my Baltimore Ravens card!

Thats not such a big deal I was under the impression you were taking hard inquiries in addition to the originals.  Maybe it was due to the holiday.

Re: I'm in the garden, but I keep getting inquiries on my report...

So I just found out that apparently, I have an Old Navy account. Checked my Experian report today, and Old Navy is reporting. Lol! Yay!

 

I just didn't want anymore inquiries or new accounts since I overdid it last month. Now I feel like I have to start my gardening date over again. Woman Sad

 

Thank you all for the input.
