New credit ding?

I did some searching and found a few older threads with varying opnions on this one, but if memory serves, I think I remember a penalty of sorts negatively affecting one's Fico score for some time after opening a new account.


As it's been about five months since I last opened an account, I'm hoping for a score bump sometime next month...


Does that sound right?

Current Scores: EX: 640, TU08: 636, EQ: No idea. 01/31/2016. Last App: 01/01/16.

Zero percent financing is where the devil lives...
