Separate credit cards for auto pay accounts?
I've had to call and swap out credit cards on a number of occasions over the last few years when I had auto pay set up and the card(s) were compromised (numbers were stolen). I was thinking of getting an Amex and a Visa using them for all autopay bills and not carrying them around; and then having another AmEx and Visa or MC (different accounts) that I would carry around for daily use. Will that hurt my credit score and/or is it a dumb idea?
