74 point increase by Ex in 5 weeks?

I signed up for Experian's credit monitoring (whatever they call it this week) system about 18 months ago. I was cruising along with 4 cards and no real change to my CR. I recently opened 4 new accounts, Walmart, Amazon, Cabelas and Macy's. Within the past 5 weeks my score has gone up 74 points on Ex. Is that normal? I intend to garden for a while since this is probably going to screw up my AAoA but i'm getting closer to my low 700's goal.



Starting Score: 530 - 2/12
Current Score: EX - 720 EQ - 714 TU-690 WM-720
