Is it too big a hit on my score for have two credit applications at the same time?
I’m trying to improve my credit score after some difficult times. I have a great debt to income ratio, but need to increase my open/available credit. My thought was to either transfer the balance on the one credit card I have to a new card, or just get a new card in addition to the one I already have. Can I do both now without getting too big a hit on my score for have two credit applications at the same time?
