For a credit builder, having more than 3 cards may raise a red flag. I'd rather work on improving the CLI's for the cards you already have. One or two cards with high CLI's are more impressive than a bunch of cards with CLI's in the low hundreds.


Thank you for the advice.


I would wait for about a year then apps for some prime card like Dscover, Amex, US bank or join with Credit Union. Everything you apps right now not going any further than $500. Let your account aged then you can avoid toy Limit.
