I signed up with creditkarma 1 MONTH ago. I opened 1 small MC & 1 retail card. Score dropped 115pts!
I only had a car loan open that was flawless. I was advised to apply for a credit card to boost my score. I opened a $300 Master Card and 1 retail store. Atvthe time that I was approved for the MC my score went from 668 to 649. When I was approved for the retail store my score went from 649 down to 553. How is that even possible??!!
