I'm about to apply for a mortgage so I will have 2 mortage companies do a hard pull for my credit, from what I read hard pulls within one week are not that bad, so I was thinking I can also apply for higher credit limits with the credit cards that require a hard pull, apply for better home insurance rates (which I think do a hard pull also), etc during this period, is this a good idea? How many points should I expect to lose on my score?

The first rule is while you are in the mortgage process, don't apply for anything else until after the loan is fully closed.


Pulls for a mortgage or car loan within a certain time are supposed to combine, because people are only out to buy one house or car and they commonly shop for the best rate.


But credit card pulls do not combine, they will hurt you the same as any other time. Insurance pulls are not supposed to affect your qualification for loans.

      Noticed this on the Barclays site. Any thoughts on this? Is there a BOA US Air product I don't know about? I think there use to be a BOA US Air debit card...

      Anyone know much about Suntrust credit cards?
      I have an old student loan backed by them but that's my only experience with Suntrust.
      Doesn't look like anything too exciting but not too bad either. Not much of anything in credit pulls.
      Anyone want to be a GP for one?
      The cash back card is 2% up to $6k on gas and grocery then goes to 1%.

      Whoo Hoo!
      DW was just approved for NASA Visa Platinum Rewards, $13K, 9.9%
      I'm trying to make sure she has a complete credit profile, she has no credit unions yet. Although, she was just accepted to Navy FCU (based on my membership). CC application there is "pending".
      Her FICO scores:
      Exp : 789
      TU : 798
      Eq : 806
      The NASA HP has not shown up yet, but I'm guessing it will be Experian like mine was.

      I'm in the process of getting a HELOC and I want to know if that limit will weigh on what the CCC decides to give for a new CL?

      We bought our house about 3 weeks ago and I immediately app'd for a Lowe's card and got a CLI on recon for $5000. Since then things have gotten out of hand!! I spent approximately $3800 on the Lowe's card on things for the house, and splurged on a washer and dryer. I sooo got caught up in the excitement of shopping for my new house. My utilization is ridiculous across the board on my 5 cards. I make decent money and I know I can get this under control in the next 30 days. I'm just falling into the pattern of paying bills with my credit cards and then paying the balance with my next check and then starting all over again, and I see it getting out of hand. I just needed to get this off my chest so that I am being accountable to someone out there..I keep having bouts of anxiety when I look at my balances. Although, I guess that's better than not caring at all. I have made great strides and come along way since January of this year. I will not go backwards!! O.K. thanks everyone, I don't want to sound like a whiny child. I will keep moving forward.
      Step 1- Get the credit cards out of my wallet and out of reach (done)
      Step 2- Start paying on cards-
      Wal-mart- $256/ $600 CL (paid $300 today)
      SDFCU- 274.89/$500 CL
      Lowe's-3900/5000 CL (6 months no interest)
      Cap One- $854/1000 CL
      Open Sky-$250/$300 CL
      Step 3- When utilization is at 1% on one card, KEEP IT THERE!! I'm such an salamander!! SMH!!
