It is very easy to see that more credit cards with balance statement will not cause too much influence. Even if you have been influenced by new accounts reported at the same time, you will only lose several credit scores in total. Certainly, only less than half of credit cards have balance statements in my test.

Credit Card Application Restrictions – Capital One

Unlike most of the others on this list, Capital One does restrict the number of personal cards you have in your wallet to two.
