I tried searching for the answer but I had no luck to my question.
How soon after getting your card can you apply for another Amex card? I had mine 1 month (Zync)
I seen some threads say if your already a member it will be a soft if your pre-approved in their system if not it would be a hard? or if your "not pre-approved they won't pull you at all" is this true?
I really want the BCP but I don't know what to do!

Since you have a charge card and want a credit card product, you can apply now.
It will be a HARD pull.
However if you sign into your account and then go to apply for additional cards you can by-pass most of the regular application because Amex will fill in the stuff and just ask a couple questions and BAM instant answer usually.

Ok next question, I have 2 inq from last month one being Amex for the Zync, and one from Citi (approved $4000CL)
3 from 5months ago.
1 from 10months
1 from 11months
1 from 12months
4 from 14months ago 2 if you count the 3 as1 for my auto loan
Do I dare apply? Would they see that as too many inq's?
I know my score should be (I would think) lower 700's if not even a little better but don't know for sure unfortunately.
Suggestions? Thoughts? Help...

I wouldn't worry about the INQ.
Once you are a cardmember your score with them only improves in my opinion as long as you are spending on the card and paying in full.
Yes, I used that poor little card a lot last month, paying it off right after I used it too.
Do you think I would stand a good chance at being approved for the CC?

Ok it wasn't an instant decision it just said "Your application has been received you will be notified in 7 to 14 days thanks for applying"
so I went to the app status and....
09/22/11 BLUE CASH PREFERRED(SMS) Approved Congratulations! Your application has been approved and you should receive your new card within 7-10 days. If you requested a balance transfer to this card, click here to view the status of that transfer.
But how do I know the limit? Do I have to wait to get the card?

You can call the good people at AMEX. They should be able to tell you.
