If I apply for 2 credit cards, will this bring my score down?
Yes it will permenantly destroy your credit! just kidding! When you apply for a new credit line the inquiry will hurt you 2-5 points on average. Also new credit lines will lower your Average age of accounts. If you have a solid credit history it's nothing to worry about really. The scores rebound will rebound pretty quickly.
