Upon reading a post by one of the mods (Can't remember which one...) on some random thread (I know, I'm being very descriptive) they mentioned that if they could "start over" that they would get 1 Visa, 1 Mastercard, 1 AmEx/Discover, 1 retail card and 1 gas card.I recently just applied for a bunch of cards to try to match this set-up. Does it really make a difference though? Credit cards, retail cards, gas cards? They're all "credit" cards. Do they show up as different and give you more mix on your report and give a higher score?
