How soon should I apply for a second card from BofA?
 
I am getting the regular secured card in the mail soon. Should I apply right away for maybe the Hawaiian Airlines Visa or wait 3mos., 6mos.?  All 3 scores are at about 620 average with a Bk almost 7 years ago.
 
I know it's better to wait longer but "how soon"? Am I just spinning my wheels until they graduate me? Am I better off letting it age and maybe trying CCCU  to get another TL (with the BofA I will only have three TLs; WAMU unsecured, BofA secured and CrownJewlers)?
 
Thanks for any advice.

Starting Scores: EX 521, TU 508, EQ 486

Actually, BoA has some great cards (I have the Haw Air). Their secured products are top notch.
