I wouldn't app any right now and just set yourself up for the cards in 6 months to a year. I'd be more focused on getting your limits up higher to better set yourself up.
It would likely end in just new inqs. If however you are set on apping (based on your posts I don't believe this to be the case) I think you have a good chance at the Barclays right now only it probably will end up being the Platnium version. Nice thing about Barclays- you can usually request the CLIs (with a HP always) and get your limits to where you want pretty easily if you handle your account well.

Funny I was thinking that would be my least likely one to get seeing as they typically pull TU and I got 11 HPs with them in last six months - 6 of em were this year!

Re: In which order would you app-spree these cards?

If you do nothing now and hope to get CLI's from your existing cc's in 6 mos - Chase/BoA may be HP'S. Cap 1 and Discover have been iffy on SP's. if you app now ( not my recommendation) and app for your list of cc's in your spree and want CLI's on your existing cc's - that's quite a few inq's.

IMO, get your CLI's from your existing cc's -SP's/HP's and once they post go for the app spree.

Re: In which order would you app-spree these cards?

Primechicken,

since you're waiting for a year, i think you will be in good hands.

Go in the order of:

 

Citi

US Bank Cash+

Barclays.

 

Only because Citi is pretty much impossible to recon with.

During the meantime try to get CLIs to get your CL near or higher than 5k.

 

The Priceline visa 2% might be discontinued soon, so time may not be on your side. You might want to take the plunge and risk 1 inquiry now and secure that 2%.

The new offer is 1% everything with 5% priceline.

 

JPMorgan Palladium (100k), AmEx Platinum (NPSL), AmEx SPG (46k), AmEx BCP (42k), Chase Sapphire Preferred (47k), Citi Prestige (31k), Citi Thank You Preferred (27k), Citi Executive AAdvantage (25k), JPMorgan Ritz-Carlton (21k), Merrill+ (15k), US Bank Cash+ (22.5k), Wells Fargo (12k), Bloomingdale’s (12.4k), Chase Freedom (5k), Discover IT (5k).

It's a toss up. I don't have a Barclays cc and I thought 2 would be ok....surprisingly The letter 'B' is missing from my credit card portfolio. Lol
