How to Remove MONRO-DC/CBNA From Your Credit Report

Is MONRO-DC/CBNA hurting your credit score?

Lexington Law Firm has successfully assisted millions of clients in removing inaccurate and questionable credit inquiries from their credit reports.


MONRO-DC/CBNA is a credit report code that stands for Monro Auto Service and Tire Centers/Citibank North America.

You may see MONRO-DC/CBNA on your credit report as a hard inquiry. This usually happens when you apply for a Monro credit card issued by Citibank.

The Impact of Hard Inquiries on Your Credit Score

When MONRO-DC/CBNA appears on your credit report, it is classified as a hard inquiry. Hard inquiries occur when a financial institution checks your credit as part of their decision-making process for approving or declining credit applications.

Although a single hard inquiry might only lower your credit score by a few points, multiple hard inquiries in a short time frame can have a more significant impact. This is because credit scoring models view numerous inquiries as a sign that you may be experiencing financial difficulties or are at a higher risk of defaulting on credit obligations.

How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?

Hard inquiries can remain on your credit report for up to two years. However, their impact on your credit score diminishes over time. After about a year, most credit scoring models will no longer consider the hard inquiry in your credit score calculation. It’s still essential to be mindful of the number of hard inquiries you accumulate in a short period.
