Good Morning everyone! I haven't toured these forums in over a year, it's cool to be back! It's been a busy year for me. My wife and I got married and now we are expecting our first baby next month! But enough about me, on to my question. After getting married I had to utilize my cards a bit but now I'm doing good and I am getting credit card enthusiast fever. What would be the next difficult card to be approved for? My last 2 apps were in Feb and March of last year, and I snagged BCE and CSP. Both of those were huge milestones for me, I am curious to see if there are any similar milestone cards these days. Thanks and continue being awesome!

I don't really have any advice regarding milestone card suggestions. But congrats on the marriage and baby very exciting.
I don't know about milestone but Discover is nice with the double cashback the first year...if you don't already have one that is...

Don't get a Milestone Visa. They're a terrible company and th...
Oh, you weren't talking about THAT card, just a card that represents a milestone. Got it.
As the previous commenter said, the title is going to make many pass on the thread.
Regarding your question, there's no need to push for prestige or symbolism in your life. Much more important things happening, so I'd recommend getting something useful. Looks like you have good cash rewards. Do you travel and need a good hotel card? Maybe a BT card with 0%? Some variety perhaps, with Discover?
Enjoy the wife and baby. Get a card that will help with that goal.

Get a PenFed card. Low APR if you qualify. No cash advance charges. Multiple products available for the growing family. And, 1 EQ HP!
Plus start using a budget. Putting away even $25 a month starting now will be at least some money for college or a car when they eventually need it.

Congrats on getting married and 1st babby. Many blessings. Not sure where else to guide you as we basically know nothing about your profile .
I also thought, and probably some other skimmers, tht your post is in regards to a Milestone credit card which to me is a rebuilder card on par with the Credit Ones and First Premier. Its quite possible this is another reason you may not be getting any responses.
Id give a little about yout scores and profile and what you are really looking for. Perhaps change your title to something like suggestions on getting new credit card or something like that. Remember most people want to help but i also find alot just skim titles on what interest them. Good luck
Me to AJC. I was logging on to say nooo. Don't do it. Milestone card bad. lol

I think you guys are misunderstanding the use of the word "Milestone". OP is talking about his next great card, the next milestone in his journey, not getting a card with the subprimbe bank, Milestone.
