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.
