New Discover Card

Anyone have their fico score drop 23 points for adding a new account?  Jeez I was floored to see when my discover card reported this much of a decline.  I thought for sure adding my amex backdated to 2004 and a new card would offset.  Woof...what a bummer

Not necessarily.  Could be dinged more for the new account than the AAoA hit.
