Welcome to the forum.

 

I would start thinning out the low limit cards from places you don't shop often.

 

You should focus on getting some good cards from banks that bear a logo allowing you to use them elsewhere.

 

Having so many store cards is pretty pointless.

 

You will get better rewards with a few good bank cards.

 

Chase, AMEX, and US Bank in my opinion offer some of the best cards.

Re: What do you think? Too much?

Most banks will decline you. You have a bunch of low limit cards which likely means you have a bunch of INQs on your credit report.

 

You need to get rid of the cards you don't need. Try for soft pull CLI's on the others. Wait several months and then try for some prime cards.

Re: What do you think? Too much?

I understand it is hard to avoid apping. I am 21 and have too many cards as well. Avoiding the store card apping will be good. Make some goals and work towards some non store credit cards.
