I'm posting this to see if there is agreement about what my next steps should be.
Here is what I've got:
Credit score of 660ish
Authorized User on Dad's Chase Freedom. 6 years old.
Local Credit Union Visa: $2,500 limit. 1.5 years old
Nordstrom Store Credit Card: $6,000 limit. 6 months old (Got limit increase today)
Amex Gold Premier Rewards: NPSL. 2 DAYS old.
I obviously just applied for and got the Amex. I'm hoping it was the right decision! Was it?
1 charge off on a chase student credit card in 2008.
I'm graduating from graduate school this year and starting a new job with a good salary this fall. I'm getting married this summer and we'll want to buy a house in a few years. I'm looking for the highest credit score I can get to facilitate that. I'd also like to pay off my student loans as quickly as possible (I'll have roughly 70k there when I graduate).
So....what should I do? A few people have suggested that I apply for a few additional cards immediately. If you agree, which cards do you suggest? Why?
If you think I should wait, how long should I wait? Why?
Any thoughts are appreciated!
