I dont know if I can apply for an AMEX or a PenFEd

Hi My FICO is 650 pulled today

my wallmart TU is 663, but Karma says 573.

 

I have too many recent inquires 8+ or maybe more, 0 collections and 1 baddie in the las 12 months

 

I recently got approved for a capital one platinium for $500 

 

Should I wait? how long?

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.

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.
