"I have herd that the charge cards are easier to obtain than the revolvers...i have my eyes on the gold prg.if i get that i will use that for as my debit for my bills so i can get that 3X increase on the 61th day."

 

3x increase does not apply to their charge cards, they do not have a pre set limit Cat Happy

Every 6 months I pick 3 new cards I want and go after them 675-682 My last app spree hit

This point should be stressed more here an app spree should not be encouraged because its not for every profile
A thick file will support more apps at one time while a thin file may see negative reaction to this process

IMHO 4+ at one time is to many for a new file and it should be kept to 1-3 a year but we get caught up sometimes in seeing the little wheel spin and the words approved

No, the green, gold, gold prg, and platinum have no pre set limit, meaning no limit reports. You can charge as much as they allow you to, but you must pay it off each month. They do have an internal limit, that is based on your spending, but will increase to accommodate your spending patterns.
