i know what you mean. I have 8 INQ in from March thru May and are all credit card HP's and 5 new accounts in the last 3 months so dont feel too bad. I got declined on my first request for 3xCLI and recieved the letter yesterday and it was for low fico score (even though it was 706 on the letter) and also the times creditors have viewed my credit report which i know that was the real main reason for getting declined. 2 new accounts is not that much but to be on the safe side i would wait 6 months and you should be good for an AMEX.

I'm hoping Amex will give me a pretty high limit as a good xmas gift Smiley Happy lol My goal is to get a limit above 10k. But I'd be pretty happy with 8k.

Thats what I was thinking...

 

One thing that makes me question or confuse me sometimes is.....I hear it a lot to wait 6 months, etc. But isn't the inquiries still on your credit report? Because I thought it takes up to two years for inq's to fall off. And when I see denials, sometimes I see its because there's too many inq's in the last 12 months. Would they hold it against you if you app after 6???
