Ya I was considering applying for the BoA World Points Visa card along with the AMEX. I currently have my 1st card through Citi. I just don't want to see a drop in my score. Right now I owe roughly $3,100 on my Citi and it will be paid in full around mid August. Should I wait till it is paid off to apply, or apply now?
