Have newbie question regarding multiple credit card applications

Re: Have newbie question regarding multiple credit card applications

OK, so you are saying that I should apply for the Discover IT as well as a revolving Amex (like Blue?) before the end of April.

I am a bit confused. Do you mean that the NEW revolving Amex card would actually be considered an older account like my 25+ year Amex Gold card and even out the AAOA?

Will applying for 3 credit cards in a two day span not freak out Amex?

Dark Star Congrats on the discover it card!

To answer your question on the AMEX: If you felt one of those no annual fee American Express cards could possibly fill a need, opening 1 will back date to your original MSD. So you will have 2 American Express TL's that will report as 25 year old accounts.

Your current inqs shouldn't do much damage, just something to consider for your AAOA's well being.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."
