(Although I still want to REDUCE this amount by at least 2 cards - probably both of my Cap One cards. I don't want that many cards to try to keep active!)

Re: How many credit cards do you have?

I dont know if this is a good idea or not but I want to reach 20 credit cards.

 

The way I think about it is in 2 years all those hard pulls will be off.  Thats the time when my car lease is also up.

 

I am trying to think of 2 years from now and being able to garden for years.

Re: How many credit cards do you have?

What I do is put very small fees on each card.  For example one for netflix, one for hulu, one for my web hosting fees etc..  I can probably use about 4 cards and the rest completly automated in terms of paying them and charging them.

 

Is this even a good idea?  I see you have a much higer score than me Transmogrifying_Bee.

Hmm I think i heard from somewhere to many Credit cards can hurt your score ( I didn't hear it from here but somewhere else) Though i can be wrong

Just three for now.. I've still got my eye on that Sallie Mae MC and the new Sam's MC but I need to stay strong with the garden until at least March.

Re: How many credit cards do you have?

It shows as having a low impact but I have a low score on the amount of accounts I have opened.

 

If I can open about 10 more cards I can reach the 22+ with my future mortgage loan.

 

I am not sure what to do Smiley Indifferent

I wouldn't follow Credit Karma advice.  I think they're basically looking at how people with good credit have a lot of accounts - but that's just because people with longer histories probably have more accounts, not BECAUSE they have more accounts.
