I have 5K of CC debt, and a credit score that is almost excellent, should I open a new account?
Between my tax return, and current savings I can eliminate the debt immediatly, but I think the new line of credit with a prestigious card will increase my credit (after dropping it because I opened a new account, and did a credit inquiry). Is this a good idea to boost me into excellent credit? or should I stay on the cusp?
