The Master Rules For The Best Time to Apply Thread

Recommended Posts

#1) For American Express, January, so you get the full benefit of D*

 

#2) For Experian pullers, Last Day of the Month.

Rationale: If you apply the First Day of the Month, you have to wait 28-31 days to hit the 25th month.

Then the next full weekend for that inquiry to drop off.

Applying on the last day of the month, as opposed to the first day, reduces time inquiry sits on report by almost a full month.

 

#4) For Equifax pullers, right before C*

 

#5) For PenFed, wait for pre-approval, could be inquiry-free

 

#6) For PenFed, within 60-90 days of last time PenFed pulled report, can be re-used.

 

#7) For ING, wait for pre-approval, could be inquiry-free

Can we get a Master thread of all the Master threads, and get it stickied?

 

Maybe dump/merge the old Automatic counting for B* thread with the [updated] one?

For PenFed it should also be noted that you can apply the same day you open the account with out a separate inquiry.

 

NFCU - According to the CSR, all credit card products on the same day are the same pull. The other products (consumer loans, auto loans, navcheck) are a separate pull but are shared if you apply for multiples of those loans.
