USAA: allow more than one CC?

hey my fellow USAA members, can we have more than one card? Is it even a good idea? I recently got approved for a rewards card (love!) with a great CL. Because of some unseen need for an AMEX in my wallet I now have, I want to apply for it through them. Butttt, I'm not sure if they allow two or if I just nurture this one for a few months and app around Christmas???

started mid 500's. Disputed incorrect items and within a month or two my scores have skyrocketed and continue to do so
EQ: 755 as of 8/2013
TU: 700
Experian(or as I call them, the devil) I have no clue, they haven't released my report
Goal=801 across the board!!! Not too far from this, hoping to garden until Christmas 2013

Re: USAA: allow more than one CC?

I love USAA and use just about every one of their financial services. IF you need an AMex card, why not go through Amex? The USAA Amex is not a true Amex in the fact that its not issued by Centurion Bank.

My wallet:
***Amex BCE 3k***USAA Platinum Visa 12k***Barclays Apple 7500k***Veridian CU 10k***Discover It 10k***Bank of America 8k***Amex Zync***USAA Patinum MC 12k***Navy Federal 20k

I got my mastercard the beginneing of Jan, my Amex at the end of Jan (pre-approved offer) and my visa in July of this year.  I see no reason why you can't get another card.  Good Luck.
