my rule is not to put a card on my credit report unless I would be making at least $500 off it.

still don't think it's worth getting my credit report dirty over (need to be prepared for when good offers come around)

Why is that "dirty"? If every card made a report dirty, my report is wrecked.

it's much easier to reconsider when you have 18/24 then 50/24 ;)
In other words the less, the better
I would put more cards on my reports, but only if I'm getting a fair use out of it
