When is the best time to apply after you get denied for credit? Another inq question...

I applied for an Amex on the 19th of June. Denied.
Is it better to apply again soon or wait? And if waiting is better,..about how long?
By applying I don't mean for the same company, but for new credit with someone else.
 
I want to apply for CCCU, and I can't decide whether to apply now or wait a month or so.
 
I'm just confused,...what's new..

Do it now unless you think your scores will increase in the next month or two.

Good luck.. FYI.. They don't do instant approvals.
