Number of Credit Cards reporting

I have a temporary score drop of 20 points on EQ as I had 5 reporting credit cards, plus mortage and car loans.  I use my "sock drawered" cards once or twice every six months to show activity. I currently have 7 bank cards reporting. Amex revolver, Chase Freedom, Chase Airlines, Discover, PenFed, Community, and Capitol One.

Starting scores 01/02/2012 EQ 707(Fico) TU 733(Fico) EXP 735 (FAKO)
Updated scores 06/01/2014 EQ 797(Fico) TU 768(Fico) EXP 769 (Fico), EQ 849 (Next Gen 5/27/14 Penfed)

Remember the Three P's: Pay early in Full, Pay on Time, Patience
