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

Seems really high to me but I guess it just depends how much aaoa was hurt.
Not necessarily. Could be dinged more for the new account than the AAoA hit.
