What is R Us Credit Card SYNCB?
Have you noticed the code “R Us Credit Card SYNCB” on your credit report? Let’s break down what this code means and how it can affect your credit score.
R Us Credit Card SYNCB (or Rus Credit Card SYNCB) represents Toys R Us Credit Card/Synchrony Bank. If this code appears on your credit report, it’s probably a hard inquiry. It usually indicates that you applied for a Toys R Us credit card, which is issued by Synchrony Bank.
Hard Inquiries: What They Mean for Your Credit Score
When you apply for a Toys R Us credit card or any other type of credit, the lender generally conducts a hard inquiry on your credit report. This process involves examining your credit history to determine your creditworthiness. While a single hard inquiry might only lower your credit score by a few points, having multiple inquiries in a short period can cause more significant damage.
What is a soft inquiry?
In contrast, soft inquiries are less invasive credit checks that do not impact your credit score. They may occur during background checks, prequalification for credit card offers, or when an existing creditor reviews your credit situation.
How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?
Whether you are approved for the Toys R Us Credit Card or not, the hard inquiry will stay on your credit report for up to two years. These inquiries are recorded by one or all of the three major credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.
Handling Unauthorized Inquiries
If you come across an inquiry you don’t recognize or are certain you didn’t initiate, it’s crucial to contact Synchrony Bank right away. The creditor’s name should be listed under the hard inquiry section on your credit report. They can provide further information and help resolve any issues related to unauthorized inquiries.
