It is an exact science to how many inquires you will receive when doing a 2/3/4bm. This varies by issuer and the cards being applied for. It is a lot of work but it can be done. I know from reading other threads that some here know exactly what I am talking about.

Anytime a person is involved it is not exact science. you can call recon and they decide to pull a different report and boom, 2 pulls. Sure there are general rules, but nothing is written in stone.

I am talking about the inquires for the original apps. This for the most part is 100% automated.

Almost 100% of the time it should work, but there are times........

ETA: The exact science you are talking about is is not so simple and would be very hard to be put in a chart format.

That's a funky link. The website takes you to a page with a bunch of buttons saying IHG Consumer that all go to the same page. Can s/o confirm the legitimacy of this link?
