How to Remove DSNB Bloom From Your Credit Report


Is DSNB Bloom hurting your credit score?

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

What is DSNB Bloom?

DSNB Bloom is a credit report code that you might come across while reviewing your credit report. It represents Department Stores National Bank/Bloomingdale’s and usually appears as a hard inquiry on your credit report when you apply for a Bloomingdale’s credit card. But what does this mean, and how does it impact your credit score?

The Difference Between Hard and Soft Inquiries

When you apply for credit, lenders and creditors need to review your credit history to assess your creditworthiness. There are two types of credit inquiries: hard and soft inquiries.

Hard Inquiries

A hard inquiry takes place when a potential lender or creditor requests a full credit check to make a lending decision. This typically occurs when applying for mortgages, car loans, credit cards, insurance policies, apartments, cell phone plans, or even certain job applications. Hard inquiries can slightly lower your credit score, and having too many in a short period of time can significantly impact your credit rating.

Soft Inquiries

On the other hand, a soft inquiry occurs when a company conducts a background check or a lender or credit card issuer prequalifies you for an offer. Soft inquiries might also be initiated by existing creditors to monitor your credit situation. Unlike hard inquiries, soft inquiries do not affect your credit scores.

How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?

Regardless of whether your Bloomingdale’s credit card application is approved or denied, the hard inquiry will stay on your credit report for up to two years. The inquiry is recorded by one or more of the three major credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.

Dealing with Unauthorized Inquiries

If you notice an unfamiliar inquiry or are certain that you didn’t initiate it, you should contact DSNB Bloom to inquire about the reason for the hard inquiry. The creditor’s name should appear under the hard inquiry section on your credit report.
