Thank you for all of your past help!

I am interested in opening an EverBank Yield Pledge Checking account. Does the EverBank Yield Pledge Checking require a hard credit pull/hard credit inquiry? Any recent experience would be most helpful!

My go-to source has no data points on this: https://www.doctorofcredit.com/bank-accounts/is-opening-a-bank-account-a-soft-or-hard-pull/#EverBank 

Posts from FatWallet seem to be several years old (e.g., https://www.fatwallet.com/forums/finance/260724 from 2004).

Other sources per Google search are mixed:

Hard credit inquiry/hard pull:

Soft credit inquiry/soft pull:

Thank you so much and Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Fair enough... thank you so much for the clarification.

I called and spoke to a CS rep. He advised me to call back on Tuesday to speak with the "New Accounts" team.

However, he mentioned that they usually DON'T do ANY credit pull. However, if they cannot verify your information another way (he didn't mention which other way and I didn't ask), then they do a HARD credit pull.

Thank you again!
