Refinancing my Auto Loan & getting a new Credit Card Question
Hello I plan to refinance my Auto Loan in 4 months. I wanted to get a new Credit Card today so I can raise my credit score. I know when I get a new Credit Card my score will go down a bit. Is it a good or bad idea to get this Credit Card 4 months before refinancing my Auto Loan? Should I do it today or wait until I refinance?
Also will refinancing my auto loan help or hurt my credit? When I bought the car my credit was horrible & I have a 27.9% interest rate. My credit has improved some since.
