If they don't pull a full report and only do a soft inquiry then it doesn't ever hurt.

If you are going around in a short length of time and having banks pull your credit for the purpose of a home or car loan then usually the credit report agencies count this as one inquiry because it's quite reasonable to shop around.

How long can a hard inquiry stay on your credit report?

Up to seven (7) years or longer.
