I did my first ever AOR on 9/28 and was approved for 5 cards. At some point I'd like to get the Chase Ink Bold or Plus card for the flexibility of UR points. Not sure if it makes any difference in the approval process, but I've had a couple business credit cards for a few years, including the no annual fee Chase Ink Cash card, although I haven't used it that much. I understand it's advisable to wait about 90 days until applying for a new round of cards, but my first property tax payment is due in early December and paying it with a Chase Ink card would make a major dent in the $10K spending requirement (although I would have to pay a 2.5% convenience fee.) The second payment is due in early April. I'd also like to apply for some additional cards in the new year, in particular the Chase Priority Club so I can use the points for a four night stay in Paris in May. Ultimately I'd also like to get the Citi AA Business and Chase Sapphire Preferred cards, along with perhaps a few of the Hilton cards. So... Should I wait a couple weeks and apply for one of the Chase Ink cards in mid-November so I can use it for my December property tax bill? Or just lay low for a while and apply in early 2013 and only use it to for my second property tax bill in April? In a perfect world I'd apply sooner rather than later and get started on the $10K spending requirement, but I also don't want to hurt my chances at getting the Chase Priority Club and/or the Chase Sapphire Preferred with enough time before my Paris trip in May.
