New to the community

Looking for any advice anyone can offer! Make good money but feel on rough times. Have 8 accts (occured 1-2.5 years ago but trying to have them removed) that are paid in full charge offs; however, all my other accts are reflected as current...no lates...paid on time. Have an orchard acct with $320 limit (use every month PIF), Saks credit card $100 limit (work there part-time for the discounts), husband jared's account as a co-applicant (balance $1163) and recently was approved for a BoA CL of $3000. Should I apply for anymore credit? I would like to apply for a AMEX Costco...but if anyone have any other cards suggetions I am interested. Thanks

Are these scores FICO or FAKO?

I think your best efforts are removal of the bad accounts.  Keep working the PFD and GW process...  and Good Luck.
