What is SYNCB/QVC?
SYNCB/QVC is an abbreviation for Synchrony Bank/QVC. You may see SYNCB/QVC may be on your credit report as a hard inquiry. This usually happens when you apply for a QVC credit card issued by Synchrony Bank.
The Difference Between Hard and Soft Inquiries
It’s important to understand the difference between hard and soft inquiries, as they each have different effects on your credit report and score.
When you apply for new credit, such as a credit card, the lender or creditor will run a credit check, resulting in a hard inquiry on your credit report. These inquiries typically lower your credit score by a few points. However, if you accumulate too many hard inquiries in a short period of time, they can negatively impact your credit score and your ability to get approved for credit.
On the other hand, a soft inquiry occurs when a company checks your credit history as part of a background check or prequalification process. Soft inquiries do not affect your credit score, and they are not visible to other creditors or lenders.
How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?
A hard inquiry, such as applying for a QVC credit card, will remain on your credit report for up to two years. This is true regardless of whether you are approved for the credit card. Credit reporting agencies like Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion record each inquiry, making it essential to monitor your credit report regularly.
Dealing with Unauthorized Inquiries
If you see a hard inquiry on your credit report that you don’t recognize, or if you are sure you didn’t initiate the inquiry, contact Synchrony Bank to inquire about the reason for the hard inquiry. The creditor’s name should be listed under the hard inquiry section on your credit report.
