Which CC to get?

Last score I pulled in April was 671 TU but my utilization has gone up so I am expecting a decline in the score.

 

Currently I have the following CC's:

US Bank Visa - 3000cl

Orchard - 300cl

Cap 1 - 250cl

CorTrust - 300cl

 

Who should I look to in order to have the highest chance of approval and CL?

 

Thanks!

I would look into credit unions such as penfed and etc. IMO, I believe CU's will be less likely to hike up your interest rate or ambush your CL's compared to large financial institutions.

Maybe Juniper.  Most Juny cards pull TU.  Barnes & Noble card did but their Carters card pulled EQ.

Likely Penfed will not approve with high utilzation especially these days. I would pay down under 9% before any new apps.

True, but seeing that his score has not taken a hit, I'm assuming as of now, he has a relatively low debt to credit ratio and his creditors have not posted his current balance. So he could actually apply now before the balances are reported.

671 is at best borderline with Penfed now. But it's only an inquiry.
