how many

Hello all.  Just want to get some thoughts on how many applications to put in when I go on app spree in a few months.  Some go crazy with 20 or more.  Any thoughts??

Re: how many

I would never recommend applying for 20 cards at once.  What might your goal be???
Credit Profile -
FICO 08 Scores (03-26-2015): EQ 814, EX 817, TU 822
All three scores were 850. Lost points for not having an open installment TL. So, BE WARNED!!!!!
Credit History: 26 years ~ AAoA: 13 years ~ Util: 1% ~ Inqs: EX 1, EQ 1

Credit Cards: Amex BCP ~ Amex Clear ~ Amex Platinum ~ Barclay Ring Mastercard ~ Chase Freedom Visa ~ CITI Dividend Platinum World Mastercard ~ FIA Fidelity Investment Platinum Visa ~ First Hawaiian Bank Gold Visa

Yea, 20 is WAY to much. I would never apply for more than 1-3 every 6 months.
