Hi guys, a few questions about why certain pulls were made and how I can get rid of them. Backstory: On November 8, 2011 I did an app-o-rama for credit cards and applied for 2 Chase cards (Ink Bold and Marriot), 2 Citi cards (Thank You Premier and American Airlines Visa Business) and 1 AmEx (Hilton HHonors). Citi pulled EXP twice, Chase pulled EXP and TU for one card and just EXP for another, and AmEx pulled EXP. First question: Why would Chase pull EXP and TU for one but not the other? Then, on the 25th of November, Chase pulled an EQ and an EXP. Second question: Why would they possibly be pulling something over 2 weeks later after already making two pulls? I got denied from both Citi card because of too many recent inquiries. I wrote to the reconsideration department and got responses for one card on December 17th (approved) and another on December 20th (denied again). However, I had two more hard pulls from Citi on EXP, one on December 15th and one on December 20th. Third question: How come they pulled my credit AGAIN if they had already done it in November originally? Is this standard practice for a reconsideration? I was under the impression that when you asked for reconsideration that you did not get another hard pull? Last question: Which ones can I get wiped off? I'm hoping both the Chase ones from the 25th and the two Citi ones in December. And what is the best way for doing it? Writing a letter, calling, doing a dispute through the CRA's? Thanks a ton.
