I need a Visa or master Card

Hello all. This froum is great and you guys are a huge help.  So heres my situaltion.  I receanly applied for an Amex Gold after I got an invite in the mail.  I  applied and was instantly approved 2-2013.  I really wanted the PRG,I didnt know the differece then, but appiled for the PRG and was approved in 3-2013. Then canceled the gregular gold. I applied for the costo amex and was approed in 4-2013.  I was really supprised they gave me a revolver. I never thought I would ever get an amex, I thought it was only for Rich people. But now I have 3 hard puls on my EX report. I have one Unpaid medical collection from 2008 less than 20. AAoA about 5 years with the new cards. My only revolver is a  Discover it card  that is almost 2 years old. I got a SP incase on that finally. I was eyeing the Chase freedom to get in with them, and citi has sent me a few pre approvals in the mail, should I just wait to apply? What are my chances with maybe chase or Citi?

Re: I need a Visa or master Card

On the surface, since you have been approved by AMEX , you would seem to be in good position for the Freedom.  Do you know your scores?

Re: I need a Visa or master Card

Welcome to the forum 

If scores are good IMO freedom would be a good choice However you need to know how many INQ's as a result of the Amex app's because chase can be INQ sensitive at times and Amex does pull more than 1 CB sometimes on first app

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

you may want to think about APing for a prime card that doesn't usually pull EX for best results and better starting limit, don't want all the INQ's freak out the lender.

Barclays pull TU and they have some travel and cash back cards, so that could be a possibility for you.  Then you can garden, let some of those other inquiries age and maybe go for Freedom.

Barclays USAir World MC $8300 - DCU $7500 - USAA World MC $7000 - PayPal Extras MC (GE) $5500 - Chase Saphire Preferred $5000 - Discover It $6000 - Barclays Sallie May $2700 - Chase Freedom $1000 - Capital One $8500 (business) - store cards ranging from $500-$9500

Sallie Mae is a good pick from them.  5% at amazon and grocery.

I like the idea of the Freedom! Great card! I got instantly approved last month. They pulled my Experian and my Transunion.  I had 3 inquiries on Experian, one recently from AMEX, 0 on Transunion. I suggest you try their pre-qualification if you really want and if youre pre-qualified, go for it.  I think you'd have a good shot and if not, i gather that Chase is very recon friendly.  Good Luck!

AMEX BCE- $12,600 I Discover IT- $10,000 I Chase Freedom- $7,000 I Citi Double Cash- $3,300 I Best Buy- $2,800 I Bayport CU Visa- $1,000
