as my score and credit keeps improving, i continue to get refi offers that i keep for short periods and switch to another lender....my question is how does this look to lenders? does continuing to refi for better APR hurt my FICO?
4x is a bit much - esp if you have a thin credit file and with refi you are opening a new TL (reducing overall credit age) and getting a new INQ with each new offer. But, if the interest savings are significant then I would go for it...unless, you are looking to buy a house in the next 12 months.

I'm not sure it's hurts your credit per se, but it does kinda look funny if lenders take a real deep look into your credit. But most of all you are paying interest first on all of these loans. I would watch how much your principal is going down each time. You could end up paying more because you switch so much and never get to the point of paying down the actual balance. Best of luck!
