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

Are you applying for credit card or loans?

Re: how many

I would never recommend applying for 20 cards at once.  What might your goal be???

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