    I read your target post yesterday. If I understood you correctly, you were applying at Target every few months in order to get turned down and receive a free credit report. If this is correct, you have taken me by surprise.

    If you don't mind me asking - aren't you a consumer who is building excellent credit rather than "rebuilding" damaged credit? I respect your opinions and would appreciate a little insight here if you don't mind.

    As you know, I am rebuilding after a BK.


    P.S. There has been a second Jim on the board. He responded directly to your Target thread. I did not.

    Yes. I didn't mind playing w/ my Experian every couple of months, because other than Target no lender uses it anyway for my state (except for those pulling all 3 like Cap 1).

    I'd rather take 3 inquiries in 6 months (hence unlimited online credit reports), than pay $50-$70 a year for the privilege, especially since its the least used CRA and the damage being only minor and short term.
