No, Visa/MC/AMEX/Discover etc make no difference to your credit. However, a non-branded store card does make a small difference verses one that's branded with one of those logos.

And also a note that FICO is only looking for one bank/national cc - as long as you have at least one, you will be keeping FICO happy. Bank/national cc's are in the same category as far as FICO is concerned.So I currently have:USAA MCUSAA AmexAmex GoldPenFed VISADo any of these qualify as a bank/national CC? If not howe much of a ding do you think it is?
