My credit went down by 29%. I think it is because I have a card to pay off. Is this permenant?
Hello,

Since the last time I checked Credit Karma (August), my score was in the high 700. Now it is a mid 700. The only difference is that since August, (October when I got my new card), I used 500-600 dollars of it. My limit is 1,500. I paid parts of the card off a few times. If I pay this off, but my credit score go back or near what it was back in August?
