Re: Does 6 months have an effect?

recently for me it's been 3 months to get the points back, depending on utilization and number of cards reporting when the newest account hits 3 months. But at no point in the last 12 months did i not have multiple other accounts under 1 year old when my newest hit 3 months, so really i'm just recovering into a less harsh ding. I think if my newest account was my only one under 1 year, it would have a larger affect and it would take longer than 3 months to get the points back.
