Address Changes

I'm getting ready to move within the next couple of weeks or so. Will changing my address on accounts less than 6 months old look bad to new creditors?


I only ask because I know that time at current residence is a determining factor during approval. Thanks in advance...

Re: Address Changes

I cannot imagine because I did get approved for 4 new accounts with a 3 months old address...just had to fill in the former address. But this might be a reason why Discover chickened with the CL. Never thought about it.

Re: Address Changes

I wouldn't worry about it with your existing credit cards. But if you plan on doing new apps, do it before you move.
