Who has your checking and/or savings accounts?   Which cards were closed and why?  Any negatives on your reports?

Re: need help finding which card to apply

I would start with 2 or 3 applicatons. 

 

I would apply to Chase since you are a customer.

 

I would select 1 or 2 cards from among your previous cards that you will use and apply(like jcp).   Many will have their own records of your previous credit.  

 

Once you get 1 or 2 cards, use them every month for 6 months and add 1 or 2 more.
