I know that would have been ideal, I just didn't expect to get denied for my first one, so I went ahead and applied for the second one a month later.


Do you think from where I'm at now, I should still wait to apply for another account?  I'd like to eventually get into the cycle of doing app sprees and gardening, but I'd feel more comfortable with at least another account on the report before I wait a year.

My first cards were spread out within like a month. It is just more of, don't get your WF now, and then in like 3 months apply for another card, then 2 months later, another.
