Why would I have a 19 point drop?
My credit score has finally come back up - getting to 729 - suddenly it's dropped 19 points in the past 2 days? The only thing that changed is I opened a dept store credit card (which I did NOT use) in order to get a 20% discount and a $10 gift certificate from the store.
WTH?

because you opened a new account.

You can expect a drop any time you open a new account. 

Just keep good habits, use it and pay it,  your score should come back up in 30  days
