Applying for Credit Cards - How frequently should I apply?

Hi everyone,

I am trying to get approximately 50,000 velocity points in the next 6 months to get an award seat for two in business class.

How soon after applying for a card do you normally apply for another one? Provided you have the ability to receive another one?

As a non-representative of the site, I can possibly chip in to say that one every 3 - 4 months is probably fine. There’s no hard rule and it depends what you want to do with your credit rating later, but 3 - 4 months seems to leave my credit rating sitting in “good” status, I was able to get a home loan, and no application has been declined.

Unfortunately, we cannot provide financial advice on this site.
