Short term your score would probably drop because of a new inquiry and new credit reporting.

 

IMO don't go into unnecessary debt just for a possible score increase.

Yes that's an option but you didn't say that in your original post.  Smiley Happy

 

You made it sound like you wanted to get a personal loan just to have one. Details are very important in order to receive the most informed responses.
