I don't even own a credit card and don't want this to be involved with my credit score at all. I have all of the money right now and I plan to pay with debit, what gives? If they really try to hassle me about some credit BS I'm going to get pissed.
A few inquiries over a 6 month period do not effect your credit score. However, you should try and keep around 4 in a 6 month period to not influence your score.Does getting your credit check hurt your credit? I heard that a while ago but never thought about it. I guess I wouldn't want to hurt my credit for a non contract purchase.
Did anyone give their social on a pre order?
If they do a credit check it is probably because you could essentially run up huge usage amounts and not pay.
I can understand the frustration in that. If you get someone who wants to do a credit check maybe you can come back or go to a different store and have a different result.Doesn't make sense. I had a NetBook from Verizon for like 4 days. I initially got it just for WiFi, but had to get the $15 plan or something. There was limited usage on that plan. They didn't do a credit check on me for that purchase. I wouldn't allow a credit check for such a stupid purchase. I am going to be buying a new car in the next week, and I might shop around for interest rates. If so, then I will have a few inquiries already, and wouldn't want this one added to that! Might be a deal breaker for me...
No it doesn't !!!! If you are a new subscriber you credit is gonna get checked period and possibly current subscriber also. You are possibly gonna get an expensive piece of merchandise for a subsidized price.If they do a credit check it is probably because you could essentially run up huge usage amounts and not pay.
I got some solid info. They will ask for your SS and they do run a check because they need that info to start up an account for you. I was told also that it doesn't matter what your credit is like in case some of you were concerned about that.
