How soon do new credit accounts start to increase you credit score?
Recently opened three new accounts. Wasn't sure i would get approved for any but I desperately need some active credit on my report. I do have some derogatory credit but was wondering how long does it usually take for new credit to impact your report. I'm now dealing with derogatory past credit and when I mean past we are at the 5 to 6 year mark.
