Did anyones FICO scores drop after getting a new store card after 60 days different from a credit card?

I have my 4-6 cards, and the last time I got a store card was 1998, and I didn't know myFICO from a hole in the ground at the time  :smileyvery-happy:

Re: article: how many credit cards is too many

I've gotten a number of cards, including store cards, and I don't think I got extra dings for them being store cards.

Special sale prices, including extra discounts when you use that card, are part of the reason I use them. I currently have a 0% for a year offer on some jewelry I was going to purchase anyway.

Just don't carry a balance at their typical rates. :smileyhappy:

Re: article: how many credit cards is too many

I wonder if you carry balances on store cards if that hurts your score more then?

No, it just means you're a dork. :smileyhappy:

(I've done it. At the time, I was also a dork.)
