The following 4 accounts were opened in April 2008
Target, Macy's, Kohls, Bloomingdales. Can I expected to see any type of increase in my FICO score?
EQ - 738 TU - 701

Just based on everything I've read here on the Forums, IMHO you may see a bump in your scores; but It is not going to be a major bump as it would be if you had a Visa or MC in your mix. All of your accounts are charge accounts. Fico ways more heavily on revolving accts.
I'm in your shoes as well. I opened 4 CCs in 04/08 and am hoping for a nice boost, however all of mine are revolving; I have no charge cards as of yet.
Without having a single revolving acct. you have spectacular scores! Or do you have any revolving accts? I'm only speculating here.
Thanks for the post.
