You should take care of the baddie and wait at least a year. Also stop applying.

PenFed pulls EQ and AMEX usually pulls EX, but if you are borderline they will pull sometimes all three.

 

I would garden, let your new accounts and baddies age.

Definitely garden those cards. Let those inquiries start to fall off. Penfed is supposed to be very strict.

Which is it?

 

8+ or more?

 

Stop applying or they will see some impulse control issues.

My plan is to apply to a couple cc and then garden for a year, I applied o amex and got denied, I will use the backdoor number for it and give it a last try.

 

when I said baddie i meant a late in one of my cc, not a collection oops :smileyhappy:

your not listening to anyone at all. its going to be a first premier card for you. Thats about it at this point. YOu need to settle down for 6-12 months.
