App for another account before two new accounts report to CRA ?

App for another account before two new accounts report to CRA ?

I got the Discover IT and AMEX green early Jan.

 

They are going to report Feb 2 and Feb 5.

 

Should I make another attemp at another prime card(maybe another AMEX) before they report or better to get the 21 backdating AMEX to report ?

 

I don't need more credit, but unsure how bad two new accounts will hurt me, and will AMEX that is 21 backdating hurt me, as it will be a new account or showing my oldest account ?

 

any help is appreciated.

 

thanks

Go for it! There are a bit of members who stated they got multiple AMEX cards when approved and waiting for their AMEX cards. 

 

After that I would garden because you got a nice arsenal of cards!
