Re: Mini APP Spree! CSP + BCE UPDATE!!

So now I am thinking if I should app for another card just to round out my profile for this next couple years. Are there any suggestions? Cash+ is out of my range. What do you guys think about the Citi cards, and BoA cards? I'm probably looking to apply for something that would HP EQ or TU in Massachusetts


If you are travelling overseas a chip and pin/sig card would probably come in handy. Chase offers a couple as does Citi.

Welcome to the Amex family!

Thanks! You definitly helped me over the past months.


7 months ago my FICO was at 699, and my highest CL was $1250 with Capital One. Since then I got approved for Discover starting CL was $3500, which is now $4250 through auto CLIs, got my Slate increased from $750 to $4000 with a SP. Now I have CSP and BCE! I increased my total CL by $10,400 yesterday!


Time to ax  the Capital Ones, but I'm gonna try to get a CLI and PC with the executive office first. Should I do that before or after my new cards report?


I want to app for one more!

BCE: $0/$11,200, CSP: $0/$6500, Chase Priority Club: $0/$3500, Freedom: $0/$5000, Barclays NFL: $0/$7000 Discover: $0/$10,000, Citi Dividend: $0/$2000
