How many tradelines for a 700-800 club score?

Hello all :smileyhappy:

 

I have 4 revolving tradelines on my credit report:  a BOA card, a GE Retail card, and two cards that I'm an AU on.

 

How many tradelines should I open before I head off to the garden and patiently watch my scores go up?  2?  3?

Let's see how far we've come...
06/2012 - Mid score 556, BoA Secured Card $250
09/2014 - Mid score 733. Chase Freedom 6K | Amex Everyday 6k | Discover IT 6K | BoA Rewards 6K | Ashley Furniture 5.5K | Amazon Store Card 1.5K | Closed on our mortgage 07/2013!

Hi hevj,

When myFico started doing EX scores, one of the threads about it had a poster that hit the 850 score!  She didn't have that many tradelines, no huge abundance or anything crazy.  Just a few to give it a good mix is what I recall.  



FICO: EQ 722 | TU 723 | EX 718
SFFCU Visa $11.3k + LOC $5k, USAA Amex $6k, USAA MC $7k, Amex BCE $13.5k, Cap1 $4k, Freedom $5k, Slate $3.2k, Barclays SM $5k.

I hit 806 EQ (from myFICO) with only the following:

 

JCP ($124)

Emblem MasterCard ($999)

Costco AMEX ($9,000)

 

It doesn't take much (of course, I don't app much). :smileywink:

I only have a total of 8 accounts showing on my CR, 4 are open and 4 are closed.  Open accounts are, 1 mortgage, 1 LOC, and 1 CC all from US Bank.  My only other CC is from AMEX.  My oldest account, ( which is closed ), has an age of 21 years.  My aaoa is 7+ yrs.  I don't apply very often.  My last was 2 yrs ago when I got my AMEX. This got me to 842 on EX, which is a perfectly clean report.  My EQ and TU show 1 PR which will drop in 11 months.
