Congrats on your approval and sl OP! I think they look at car lease/car loan inquiries in a different light. I think. Someone should chime in on that one.
That was a smart move on your part to go ahead and go into the branch seeing you had the sp.
I was reading the threads and came across the BB&T soft pull info. I decided to try my hand and was prequalified for all 3 cards! So I continued to app for the Spectrum and received the message that it could not be processed I would have to go in branch to continue with the app. I knew that if I decided to do that, it would be a definitely hard pull. I checked my reports and noticed that it was a soft pull. So I said why not, visited a branch the following day and sat down with a rep and was approved for my first $5000 SL. Needless to say, I was ecstatic. I love each and every one of you with the imparting of this priceless knowledge in order to build strong financials for future success.
I must say I would agree that they are not inquiry sensitive and new account sensitive.
