I have been expanding my credit profile as of late, and was just wanting a few extra opinions on whether I should garden at this point or app for a new card so that they can all grow old together. ♥
Currently my Fico's according to MyFico are as follows:
My current cards are as follows:
Chase Freedom $2,200 9/13
Discover it $1,250 2/13
Capitol One Platinum $500 9/12 (Recently PC to Quicksilver)
Been getting a lot of mail offers from Bank of America for their Cash Rewards card but I don't know that I am interested in it. Recently opened up a checking and savings account with chase and I'll be putting the majoraty of my money with them. Eventually I'd like to go for the CSP. I know I don't have the greatest of incomes (28k) but, I've heard plenty of stories where someone with good credit and and a retail relationship with them have pretty good chances.
According to CK and CS and CreditCards.com/CardMatch the AMEX BCE is my "perfect" match where I am currently standing, but I don't really feel that's entirely accurate. I don't really like rejection. ♥
So, what do you guys think? Is it off to the garden with me?
Util is usually 0%

The Freedom is not reporting as of yet.

My util as always been at or around 0%, I usually PIF before my statement cuts.
The only thing I'm worried about is inquiries. I'd have to check further on that.

Don't pay all your account always before the statement because then it's not showing your credit profile you can handle any credit because it doesn't look like your using it... let 1 card report a month a smaller balance of some sort.
I would apply to Amex.. wait, amex was the question right!?

oh and you got offers for Bank of America... I say those are good to go... apply.
my partner got his BCP through creditcards.com match.

So looking at my credit profile I have a pretty good shot for it?
