Re: Now or later? Advice greatly appreciated

Ok I'll hold off on Chase for a while. And I definitely am going to wait until my reports update after I "graduate" from the program. Does the limit on the card I am an AU on help with getting a better limit than $500? 

 

Any idea about the Barclay Virgin America card? when I do have to fly I prefer them. 

Current: EX(plus) 659, EQ(Lender pull) 661, TU(Lender Pull) 664, Credit Karma: 691, Credit Sesame: 693
GOAL: 750's by Dec 2014
In my wallet: Chase Freedom $2000, Discover IT $1700, Chase Slate $1000, Citi Diamond Preferred $800, WFNNB/Victoria's Secret $500, Orchard Bank $500, Cap One Cash Rewards: $500
AU Bank of America $21,500

Re: Now or later? Advice greatly appreciated

ok, so I brainstormed. Planning on holding off any applications until Feb 2013. By then my accounts will have aged a bit more, I will have been out of the DMP for a couple months, and i'll have a few inquiries drop off, leaving me with 3 on TU and 3 on EQ. 

 

Again. Thank you guys so much for all of the incredibly useful information (and keeping me from apping!!) :smileyhappy:
