if you have all those cards you need NO MORE to build a strong history and score to qualify for amex and big cards this year depending what is holding you down... is it all your new accounts? short history? or do you have baddies?

Just say no to a ton of low limit SCT cards. Quality over quantity!

Re: Easiest visa/mc to get??

I have had my CapOne for 8 years, and my Kay for about the same. I have several good paid off installment loans and a few good car loans paid off. Only one 30day late payment two years ago. I have a few baddies I am working on too (collections for med bills, and two charge offs) but I have gone from a low 500s to a 626 ish in the past few months. I need to get my utilization rate down ALOT. That is what I am working on now. AAoA is 5 years, with 14 being the oldest and BRAND NEW being the shortest.

Re: Easiest visa/mc to get??

Hello!  Welcome to the forums!  I would suggest that you hold off on applying for new cards and garden for a while and let your new accounts age, while thats happening pay down your balances and get your utilization under control.  I would take a look into the Rebuilding Your Credit Section of the forums to see how to write GW (goodwill letters) for your late payments, and maybe some PFD (pay for deletes).  The Rebuilding Your Credit section of the forums helped me out tremendously last year!  Good luck on your journey and I hope you stick to your goals, soak up all the knowledge here on the boards...

Good advice here OP.   Working on those negative items will be a benefit in the long term as you rebuild your profile.
