Re: New credit ding?

FWIW, I applied for 2 cards last July 30 and added some additional debt as well as lowered by utilization %.  My Equifax score went from 800 to 761.  It was only last week that my score started to come back up and even then it was 1 measly point.  :smileyhappy:  I expect it will take most of the year to bounce back.
