IMO, mix looks great. I bet you can hit upper 700s to 800 without adding any more credit. You might benefit from a 3rd though as a store card. But your credit is new. IMO, let what you have agre for a year or so and then add it.

If you could increase limits by either adding more money to the secured card or requesting to get it with a soft pull, you could try that. Either way, let the accounts age and you'll be in a great position next year.

Current Cards: AMEX Everyday ($10k), AMEX BCE ($10.2k), Arrival ($7.5k), Merrill+ ($7.5k), Freedom ($5k), Double Cash ($5k)

I would apply for the walmart card so you can get free TU Fico score daily.  Keep two cards at 0 balance and the other at 9%.  It's a GE card so you can get CLI's easily and every four months.
