Maybe I should restate my question.
Question: What other EX-pulling credit cards would MyFico credit card board users recommend I app for? My EX is clean. I would like to add another positive TL to my reports with all 3 CRAs as I work to clean up the negatives on EQ and TU. I would most likely not be approved for a prime card at this point that pulls EQ or TU.
Background: I was approved for BCP this morning. I am guessing that if I want more cards (and I do), I should app soon before AmEx starts reporting a new TL on my account? However, I don't have the expertise that many of you seem to have to know what my ideal timeframe would be to app for another card -- or if it matters.
What I am looking for: Opinions on good cards to add that will pull from EX, include AUs, and opinions on what card benefits / features would round out what I currently have (BCP, Citi black diamond -- which offers virtually no benefits).

Thanks 09Lexie. That looks like the right card for me - and the website shows me as prequalifed! I really appreciate your patience with my request.

How much did they approve for?
I would go over to Citi now and hit the luv button if you have had it a bit and see if you can get a CLI on SP.... then if it's auto, call up and ask to PC into a reward card!
or else hit them up while you are applying and get one of their newer better reward cards, they love giving multiple cards to people.
