January app spree

I am looking for advice on the best order to apply for the following cards in the upcoming year starting in January. Cards I really want are CSP, a Chase ink card and an amex probably BCP but maybe spg. I currently have two active cards a chase freedom (june 2013) with 3.7k and a cap one venture (may 2013) with 10k.No baddies for over four years. No Inqs in the past six months. Last known scores in sig. I have heard conflicting advice about whether or not you can apply for a chase business card and a personal card in the same day all in one pull. I probably would like to split these two cards up so I can spread out the initial spend requirement, but if I can get them both on one pull I would do so. I had considered applying for the csp and amex in Jan and then applying for a chase ink card in April. The last time I applied for an amex charge I was denied for too many recent inquiries, so I am a bit hesistant on pulling the trigger with amex, but now I have several months of current credit history in addition to previous closed out cards.

Current Score: EQ: 725 7/30/13, TU 684 6/2013, Exp 730 6/27/14
Goal Score: 800 In garden until 1/2015

Chase will result in 2 HP's sorry 

IIRC you really wanted the business card most correct?

+1

 

Chase will consider each application separate, especially if you will be PG on the Ink card.   It appears you're on the fence on SPG or BCP .. have you given some thought as far as what would be of most value?  Travel? Cashback?

The business card is extremely important to me, but I want at least one more personal card to get to three. The business card won't help my personal credit report, which is why I was thinking about getting the csp first. I suppose I could go for a chase business card and amex personal card first and then go for the csp a few months later.

I prefer travel but I know building up points with the spg card can take awhile and a card with a bonus on groceries would be helpful. I also recall reading that the spg card might be a little harder to get than the bcp. Not sure how accurate this is.

Since the business card is so important .....speaking from a business stand point I would shot for the Chase Ink first followed by Amex charge if approved then app BCP

Immediately after thus getting 2 CC for 1 HP with Amex if approved 

 

6 months later app CSP 

Chase will see your history with them which may factor into its approval

Oh I thought the second amex card would result in a second amex HP if it was approved. In order to get two amex cards with one pull do I need to do the apps one after another?

Re: January app spree

Will go for amex gold as charge card. Do you think I should go for the bcp over spg card as my amex revolver? I go back and forth on this.

Do you stay at SPG Hotels a lot?
