Looking for a Visa or MC that will give me a decent CL

Hey All, I need some advice on getting a CC that will give me a decent CL to help with my util and allow me to close a couple of my low limit cards that won't be growing. Here's a look at my profile:

 

CapOne - $500CL/$0 bal.  HSBC - $520CL/$0 bal.   BBRZMC - $500CL/$0 bal.

Zales - $1500CL/$0 bal.   Kay's - $1300CL/$0 bal.   Macy's - $2000CL/$0 bal.

Travelocity Amex - $4000CL/$2000 bal.   Amex Zync   Amex Platinum

CFECU (local CU) - $500CL/$0 bal (CLI request was denied due to new accounts opened, the rep said I should wait until the end of the year and then request again)

Auto loan - $34k/$15k bal.   Personal loan with CU - $2600/$1400 bal.(I'll be paying this off once I get my tax refund next week)

 

Opened in 2009

Opened in 2010

 

I have nothing negative on my any of my CR's

My INQ's however are on the high side (TU-7  EQ-11 EX-14) half of them are set to fall off later this year.

 

My latest scores are in my signature. So any advice on a card I should look at would be great, I want something that I can use a backup to my Amex's and that will report a CL. If anyone thinks I should wait before getting another card, let me know, I value all opinions Smiley Wink

I would get that Amex balance down to less than $400 before applying for anything.

Thanks Albert

I thought about BofA since that's one of my banks, what do they look for score wise? Do you think I would have a shot with my current profiel?

Since you're a member of PSECU, you should check out their Visa.

Re: Looking for a Visa or MC that will give me a decent CL

I think you would qualify for a BofA card My experian score is almost identical to yours (689 pulled by mortgage lender)  About the same inquiries-- I have 12 in the last 2 years.. I didnt get a high limit, but since you probably have a longer history than i do  you would probably qualify for a decent limit, their backdoor number is awesome.
