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.
