How many credit cards are bad?
How many credit cards hurt your credit? I have no mortgage, car loans, personal loans, etc. I have 9 credit cards, 8 have a 0 Balance, 1 has a 300 dollar Balance which is about to be paid off. I only use them so it reflects payments and shows responsibility. Will that damage my credit report?

I hope you read the articles on this site since they provide a very good explanation of how credit works. It is not how many cards you have, but how well you use them and your repayment record.
