What is Kohls/Capone?
Kohls/Capone is a term you might come across on your credit report, and it’s essential to understand its implications. In short, Kohls/Capone refers to a partnership between Kohl’s, a popular retail store, and Capital One, a major financial institution.
When you see this code on your credit report, it typically indicates that you’ve applied for a Kohl’s credit card, which is issued by Capital One.
The Impact of Hard Inquiries on Your Credit Score
When you apply for a new credit card, the issuer will often perform a hard inquiry on your credit report to assess your creditworthiness. These inquiries can have a temporary negative impact on your credit score. Although a single inquiry may only reduce your score by a few points, multiple hard inquiries in a short period can cause more significant damage.
How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?
Hard inquiries generally remain on your credit report for up to two years. These inquiries are recorded by the three major credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. It’s essential to monitor your credit report regularly to ensure that all the information listed is accurate and up-to-date.
