What order should I apply for these cards in my app o rama ?

Hi, I plan to do my first app o rama soon. These are the cards I'm applying for. Discover IT, Barclays Arrival, Saphire Preferred, Us bank cash+, Charles schwab checking account ( heard it requires a hard pull.. ) , and a bluebird card.  What is the best order to apply for these cards ? In terms of which ones are harder to be approved for ? etc..  Is it too much for the first app o rama, will it hurt my credit score too much? I recently had one hard pull on Equifax last week for cli . 

 

My equifax score is 780, AAoA is 3 years, utilization is 7% .

Barclay is usually inquiry sensitive isnt it? i would put that higher on the list because of that. I would just apply for everything at the same time if you really want all of them right now.

No, nothing special.

 

OP mentioned the Bluebird, this doesn't need a credit check at all, as it is a reloadable prepaid card.

Others: CSP, Freedom, Chase Amazon, Cap One QS, Penfed Plat Rewards (x2), Citi TY Preferred, Citi Dividend, Citi AA Plat Select, Citi Forward, Amex BCE, Amalgamated Bank, Sallie Mae, Cash Plus
Scores May 14: EQ 848, EX 833, TU 841 (Jul)
