3 Citi cards at once - likely?

In the future I plan on applying for a Citi Forward, Dividend, and Thank You Preferred. What are my odds of being approved for all 3? Will have 1-2 inqs, close to 0% util, 2 years AAoA, almost paid off car loan (if that helps), and no baddies.

I really want all 3. Forward/Dividend for 5% purchases and TYP so I can get a full 1 cent value out of the points from the Forward.

Any thoughts?

By 3 cards at once you mean apply all 3 at the same time, no.

 

Citi imposes 60-90 days limit on personal CC. 

In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi Dividend (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)
Discover it (07/2012) | AMEX BCP (09/2012) | TD/Target REDCard (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012)
BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)

Some get away with 2 card (some people even does browser trick with 2 applications at once), but 3rd is definitely a no no.

I applied for the Citi Simplicity, was approved for $5000 somehow hit apply a second time and was approved for another Simplicity card with a $1200 limit. Citi refuses to combine the cards into one limit which is frustrating, but I appreciate what the limits they gave me.

Amex Blue 5k I Citi Simplicity 6.2k I Cap1 Platinum 1.25k I AE 700 I Walmart 900
