    Hi All,

    I'm fairly new to all of this an was wondering what peoples thoughts were about waiting 65 v 91 days between applications. In my situation I am looking to do my first App-o-rama, but applied for and received two chase cards (explorer and sapphire preferred) on Jan 1st. Other than those two I only applied for one other credit card in the last year. In my situation, I'd like to push it up because I just got a targeted offer for a 75k AMEX premier rewards gold after only 1k in spend in 3 months and don't want to miss out on this. I do plan on getting onto the 3 month cycle after this first app-o-rama what would like to know peoples thoughts on moving this first one up. Thanks.

    If you have good credit, you shouldn't have too much trouble getting the AMEX card. Just be sure you can meet the spend requirements on all the cards.

    Thanks, and you don't think i'll have a problem getting a few others at the same time right?

    Probably not since you're new to the churning game. I would give Chase a break for a little bit since you've got two cards from them recently.

    You should be fine with the Amex. What other cards were you considering throwing in the App-o-rama? I'd also suggest cooling it with Chase for a bit. Getting 2 personals at the same time is pretty lucky, so I'd definitely not throw a Chase personal in this app-o-rama.
