How to Remove Badcock From Your Credit Report


Is Badcock hurting your credit score?

Credit Saint has successfully assisted countless clients in removing inaccurate and questionable credit inquiries from their credit reports.

What is Badcock?

Badcock Home Furniture is a well-known furniture retailer with over 320 stores across eight southeastern states in the United States. When you apply for financing or a Badcock credit card at one of their stores, it may result in a hard inquiry on your credit report. This is because they check your credit history as part of their decision-making process.

Does Badcock report to credit bureaus?

When you apply for a Badcock credit account, the application process may result in a credit inquiry being reported to the three major credit bureaus—Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion—regardless of whether your application is approved or not.

Understanding Hard and Soft Inquiries

Hard Inquiries

A hard inquiry happens when a lender or creditor checks your credit as part of their decision-making process for new credit. Examples include mortgage, apartment, car loan, credit card, insurance policy, cell phone, and sometimes even job applications.

Hard inquiries usually cause your credit score to drop by a few points. However, having too many hard inquiries in a short time frame can significantly affect your credit score.

Soft Inquiries

Soft inquiries, on the other hand, typically occur when a company checks your credit history as part of a background check. It could also be when a credit card issuer or lender prequalifies you for an offer, or when an existing creditor monitors your current credit situation. Soft inquiries do not impact your credit scores.

How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?

Regardless of the outcome of your Badcock credit card application, the hard inquiry will remain on your credit report for up to two years. Each time an inquiry is made, it is recorded by one or all of the three major credit reporting agencies.

Dealing with Unauthorized Inquiries

It’s crucial to review your credit report regularly for unauthorized inquiries or inaccuracies. If you notice an unfamiliar inquiry from Badcock or believe it was made without your permission, contact Badcock to inquire about the issue. The creditor’s name should be listed under the hard inquiry section on your credit report.
