Re: can applying for a credit card raise a credit score?
Thnx all. My new (unsecured) card is my only open CL that reports to EQ. I mistakenly got a secured CC in April that only reported to EX and TU, those scores went up 40 points each. Hoping to get only half of that with EQ. My AAOC was 8 years....

Starting Score: EQ 609 EX 570 TU 656 March 2012 CH 7 BK 12/08
Current Score: EQ 691 EX 694 TU 713
Goal Score: all 3 700's.
Quicksilver $5000 Discover IT $1500 Barclays NFL $1250 Walmart $1500 CL Applied Bank $300 (secured)
