In all truth its time to stop applying and garden for 6 -12 months
See what your needs are at that point and go from there
IMHO your reaching for cards higher than your credit file can support with a thin file
Go slow and build credit over the course of a year not 3-4 months it just doesn't work that way.
I mean no harm just thought you should hear it so you don't waste any more HP's that you have to live with for 2 years

Because of lack of history on my credit report (got BOA on 2013 Jan), I got rejected
Even I asked for them to reconsider
They told me that they want to see more credit history.. They were only be able to see BOA secured card even though I've been using Discover it for around 2 month
Now.. Option would be
1) Call them again and ask for them to recon
2) wait tlil December to build up some credit history
3) maybe apply for another credit card?

Right, I was aware of it and I received pre-approved offer from Discover only like 2~3 month after getting BOA secured card.
I will keep that in mind and just limit cards till then, thanks for the remind!
