new trade line

I have applied for several new cards this weekend and some were approved and some were declined. What is the give and take with your credit score having multiple new inquiries but in the same breath getting several new trade lines.

Re: new trade line

Your scores are going to take some serious hits for awhile. The new TLs if you have a thin file will bring down your AAoA significantly, which will impact your credit score. In the longrun as the new TLs age and the Inqs weaken your score will begin to recover, assuming you manage the cards properly. Down the line your score will probably increase, but it will take several months to a year to fully recover.


Starting Score: EQ: 714, TU 684
Current Score: EQ: 725 7/30/13, TU 684 6/2013, Exp 730 6/27/14
Goal Score: 800 In garden until 1/2015

My AAoA is around 9yrs but this is my first time going on an app spree. I just purchased a new home last week so with the new TLs I plan on gardening for a while.
