Timing of Applications Waiting six months between applications is unnecessary; one to two months is sufficient. Applying for cards every one to two months or three months is safe. Never been denied for applying for too many cards within a short period of time. Apply for a Chase Freedom product first, then a mid-tier credit card. Consider applying for business credit cards after obtaining a few personal cards.

Chase Freedom Unlimited is still a good choice if you prefer a fixed cash back rate. Apply for a free checking account with Chase to increase chances of approval for starter cards. Decent credit score should result in automatic approval for beginner credit cards. Chase Freedom cards offer welcome bonus offers that can be redeemed for cash or travel.
