Time can only "heal" your score. Let the account age and youll be ok again

Stop applying for new credit?

5/2012: 560 credit scores across the board and $500 secured CC
12/2014: 750+ scores across the board and $80k in revolving credit

Get those baddies removed!!!

Re: how can i get my score to rise again?

Both tempus and repo gave you sound, valid advice. When I apped for 4 cards last August, my EQ score took a hit similar to yours. I winced, but realized that this is the price that's paid -- score wise -- when adding new accounts. The only real solution is to "garden" -- ie: sit back and allow the accounts to age, don't apply for anything new, and wait for the new credit "ding" to fade. Time and using your new accounts responsibly is your solution.

BTW, my EQ score has bounced back and is now higher than it was at the time of apping. Gardening works. :smileyhappy:
