Your credit score will not be lowered by these “soft” inquiries. Account maintenance(AM) and Account Review(AR) and promotional (PRM) are not counted against your FICO score. The only inquiries that count against you are the “hard” inquiries. These are the inquiries that are generated when you apply for credit somewhere or you give your consent to have your credit checked by someone. While there is no exact formula available to the general public as to how much they will count against you, the general consensus is 5 to 10 points per inquiry. Hope I helped.
