What should i get?

So, we will close on our home on 7/20.

 

I wanted to see what card i should app for....

 

My new scores are: EQ: 626 | TU: 647 | EX: 691

Her new scores are:  697 being the lowest (unsure)

 

We would like to be able to buy some furniture and what not... Rewards are better...

 

Currently we each have a cap one card...

 

Mine is 0$ of 500 limit

Hers is 0$ of 1250 limit.

 

Neither of us has ever had a late......

 

I also have a AMEX corp card that i have had for about a year now.....

 

Any info... Thanks!!!

 

I am aiming to get the highest credit limit possible so that we dont have to get multiple cards Smiley Happy

 

Thanks for your time!!!

If your EX FICO is 691, then I'd still lean towards apping for the ZYNC ( assuming that you don't need to revolve a balance ).    You can get it backdated which should limit the damage to your AAoA.

Re: What should i get?

Zync is a great card.  What are the incomes of you and your wife?  Amex is income sensitive, so if  ya'll are about the same income wise, I would let her go for it and add you as an Additional Cardmember.

 

Either way, you'll both lock in Member Since dates of 2012 which will help if you ever add more Amex cards.

Re: What should i get?

Your EX score is real good as well as your income being highish.   If I were you I would app first for the Zync, and then go for a revolver IF you are approved for Zync. Some popular Amex revolvers are Blue Cash Everyday and Blue Cash Preferred. If you travel, there are several airline ones. I plan on apping for Blue in January
