What card to get?

I am interested in apping for more cards shortly but I want some advice on what to try for. I understand AMEX zync is no longer available?

I have -
CapOne secured - 250 limit - 10 months
CapOne unsecured - 750 limit - 7 months
DCU visa - 1000 limit - 6 months
DCU auto loan - 10,000 - 6 months - three year term already paid down to 6,000.

Perfect payment history and no negatives with about 5% usage. Thanks!!

Re: What card to get?

My first instinct says go for Walmart. 

You have a *chance* to get their Discover card but even if you just get the regular store card you get the free monthly FICO score. 

 

I would wait on Chase. 

They told me they're looking for 1 year before approval and they seem to be somewhat INQ sensitive. 

 

Amazon Store Card is another option and AMEX Zync might be good for you. 

 

 

Just *my* opinion of course :smileyhappy:


Walmart Discover ($5000) - Amazon ($5500) - Cap1 Cash Rewards ($2000) - Meijer ($5000) - Discover More ($1800) - Car Care One ($2100) - Amex Delta Skymiles ($2000) - Citi Thank You Preferred ($2000) - Chase Freedom ($500) - Sam's Club, GE ($1237?)
