Activation question

Hello all, Recently I lost 2 of my boa credit cards ( both zero balances ) and had them send out new ones. Will my credit score be hurt at all if I activate only one of them? Or should I activate both and just shred the one I don't need? Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks!

Activate both, and sock drawer one if you aren't going to use it.  Don't shred it, you never know when you migh need it.  But charge something every few months just to keep it active.
