I would if you only have the 1 card: cards 1+2 and installment loans 1+2 were straight positives for me when they reported when my file was thin (albeit with derogs).

 

Also will build payment history faster, though there's diminishing returns there admittedly.

Starting Score: EQ 04 561, TU 98 567, EX 98 599 (12/30/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 693, EQ 8 714, TU 8 710, EX 8 724 (05/27/16)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/17)
