How do i get rid of Hard Credit Inquiries
I currently have 8 hard inquiries o er the past year or two. I know that having as little hard inquiries as possible makes your score go up. My current score is 738. I would like to get closer to 800. Two things I need to do is let my average age of credit get older and get rid of hard inquiries. Anyone know how to do that?

Hard Credit Inquiries

Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

 Dispute them!  If there are many that occure on the same day, they'll be easy to drop off.  A perfect example is financing for a car.  You agreed to 1 credit pull from the dealer, not 6!  Dispute them, and they should drop off.

However, they aren't going to raise your score more than about 15 pts, if that.
