10% of your Score is based off of your "Credit Mix"; the number and types of accounts you have.

Having multiple secured credit cards (paid on time of course) shows responsibility and variety.

I personally have 6 credit cards and a score of 760. The important thing is that I never pay any fees or carry the balance month to month. I always pay it off in full.
