What is SYNCB/Sams?
SYNCB/Sams is a credit report code representing Synchrony Bank and Sam’s Club. Synchrony Bank issues credit cards for Sam’s Club, a popular membership-based warehouse store.
Why is SYNCB/Sams on your credit report?
If you see SYNCB/Sams on your credit report, it generally means you have applied for a Sam’s Club credit card, and Synchrony Bank has performed a hard inquiry to assess your creditworthiness. Hard inquiries are standard procedures whenever you apply for a new credit card, loan, or other financial services.
The Effects of Hard Inquiries on Your Credit Score
Although a single hard inquiry might only cause a minor drop in your credit score, several hard inquiries within a short timeframe can lead to more significant damage.
Potential lenders and creditors may view multiple hard inquiries as a sign of financial distress, which could make them less inclined to extend credit to you. As a result, it’s essential to apply for credit judiciously and only when necessary.
How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?
Hard inquiries can remain on your credit report for up to two years, with each inquiry being recorded by one or more of the three major credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. It’s crucial to monitor your credit report and be aware of the hard inquiries listed to ensure they are accurate and not hurting your credit score unnecessarily.
