Gents I've pretty much thought of it all This is going to be your one sequence Formula in order to maximize everything You can for the general population of People watching this video so why does The sequence matter so much with these Credit cards well here's the deal it Turns out if you apply for several cards Within a short period of time back to Back to back this might harm your credit Score and decrease your chances of being Approved which can also lead to you Spending more time and trying to get Approved for some of these cards on top Of that there's also a bunch of these Funky little rules with credit cards as An example you have the infamous Chase 524 rule where Chase will instantly deny You no matter how good your credit score Is if you've applied for more than five Cards within 24 months on top of that You have the AmEx Five Card rule where American Express will limit you to five Personal and business credit cards at a Single time now by the way that rule Only affects Amex credit cards and not Their charge cards so even within the Whole credit card world there's a Difference between the two and things Like the AmEx Gold Card the AmEx Platinum card or even the American Express Green Card those would be an Exception to the MX-5 card rule that we Just mentioned now it doesn't just end

There because there is the AmEx one in Five roll and even the AmEx 2 and 90 Rule I'm not going to go into the Details of those rules but I did want to Mention it to give you guys proof that There are all these little knickknacks That you need to work through and with This video here you're actually going to Be guiding yourself through so you don't Violate any of those rules and risk an Automatic denial now the main Requirement for you to be able to follow Along this sequence is the fact that you Just need to have averaged to great Credit if you're someone who's watching This video and you got like a 400 credit Score I'm sorry but this probably won't Be able to help you out because you're Not going to be able to get approved for Any one of these cards even with that Being said I still think this video is Worth watching even if you don't have The best credit score in the world Because you'll still know what to do Once you fix your credit and by the way Having a bad credit score is not Something permanent you don't just get a Bad credit score and then you deal with That for the rest of your entire life It's actually pretty simple on how you Can improve your credit score and I've Made countless amount of videos on that Topic for the past few years and I made A recent one in the past few months so

Be sure to check that video out if You're struggling with your credit score Now on to the strategy so a smart move In 2023 is going to be to start with Credit card to have more lenient Requirements and build up from there the More credit card approvals you have Under your belt the more likely you are To get some of their higher tier Flagship cards within that same bank or Company on top of that if you use these Credit cards responsibly you'll be able To build a positive credit score a Positive credit history and it'll also Make it easier to get approved for those High tier cards down the road all right So to kick this off I actually wanted to Show you the exact sequence that I Myself did a few years ago in order to Have over 15 credit cards now I first Started with this card here that I can't Name in this video because they said That we're not allowed to talk about Them but later on the road I held that Card for about a few months and I got The Uber Visa Barclays card now this Card here does not exist anymore and the Version of it that does is completely Nerfed and it's just a waste of time so Don't even consider it now the reason Why I had these two cards first before I Got into the chase product was because It was a lot harder to get initially Approved for Chase if you had no credit

History back then the Chase Freedom Flex Also did not exist all you had was the Chase Freedom unlimited and the Chase Freedom Card what I would do now is Actually start by applying for the Chase Freedom Flex card as your first beginner Starter card the reason you want to do This is because of the 524 rule that we Mentioned earlier where if you get all Your Chase cards down the road you would Then have to wait some time before Getting approved now this sequence that You see here took me two to three years In order to actually complete and I know There are a lot of people who do not Want to wait that long so if you want to Save on time you can go straight into The Chase Freedom lineup and between the Chase Freedom unlimited I would just go With the Chase Freedom Flex I think it's A much better card if you're new to the Credit card game and you don't want to Worry about rotating categories for Whatever reason and you want to just go For the chase stream unlimited that's Still not a bad choice either if it Turns out you're unable to get approved For the Chase Freedom unlimited or the Freedom Flex card you can then go ahead Apply for a free checking account with Chase which allows you to build up a Certain type of history with them where It'll actually increase your chances of Getting approved for one of their

Starter cards right now the data points Are actually showing that as long as you Have a decent credit score you should Still get automatically approved for one Of their beginner credit cards an above Average credit score I'd say even if you Had a 680 credit score you should still Get approved for one of those cards and Anything above that even across that 700 To 730 range you'll definitely have a Good chance of getting approved now once You get this card you're going to be Eligible to get their welcome bonus Offer and what I like to do is wait just A minimum of one to two months before Applying for the next card now I know a Lot of people like to say oh wait no you Don't want to wait one to two months you Got to wait six months minimum but I Like to disagree with that I think it's Completely unnecessary and waiting six Months is way too long because if you Want to get all these cards eventually It's like getting two credit cards every Single year doing the math it's gonna Take you like five to ten years to get And finish this whole sequence don't Worry about that I think one to two Months is more on the faster side What I've Done especially within like this Mid-tier sequence was I was applying for Credit cards every one to two months Three months is very very safe too and I've never been denied for applying for

Too many cards within a short period of Time now after you apply for one of the Chase Freedom products I've noticed that A lot of people tend to make the mistake Of just applying for even more starter Cards that have no or low Annual fees What I like to do quickly after that is Actually just apply for a mid-tier Credit card that has an annual fee and This is going to be the Chase app I Preferred regardless of whatever your Travel habits may be the Chase Sapphire Preferred is a great all-around card Especially for someone who can hold it For at least one year and get that Welcome bonus so with this card here You're gonna be able to get sixty Thousand Chase Ultimate reward points After you spend four thousand dollars in Purchases in the first three months and Off a one point to one cent Redemption That's six hundred dollars in cash and Let me tell you with Chase it's actually Really easy to get two to three cent Redemptions by holding this card so That's anywhere from twelve hundred to Even eighteen hundred dollars cash back That you can apply to travel now this is The sequence that I followed and it Worked out great the big thing here is That you're now going to be paying Ninety five dollars a year to hold this Card I still don't think that is a huge Annual fee for the amount of return and

Benefits that you get for this card but Either way if you ever wanted to Downgrade this card to a no annual fee Version which is something I did much Later down the road this year is Actually the Chase Sapphire card it's The secret card that you can apply for But you can actually go ahead and Downgrade the sapphire preferred with an Annual fee to the sapphire with no Annual fee after holding this card I Actually went into the world of business Credit cards and this transition Actually happened pretty quick the Reason I went into business credit card Is because these credit cards don't add To that chase 524 rule so at a certain Point if I had gotten all three business Credit cards but they didn't have that Special little rule where it didn't Affect the 524 rule I would then have to Wait about two years in order to then Start applying for new cards at this Point I had about four cards I still Went ahead and applied for this if you Went straight into the freedom Flex card And then the sapphire preferred and then Build out the other lineup of Chase Ink Cards you'll then have mass accumulated A ton of points and on top of that you Are still just at 224 with the chase 524 Rule now business credit cards are great Because you're going to be finding much Higher welcome bonus offers but keep in

Mind the minimum spend requirement in Order to hit those offers is usually Pretty high as well so unless you have a Business or you have upcoming expenses Maybe you're renovating your home maybe You're trying to start a new car washing Business whatever it is or maybe you Don't have a business at all I've Actually made a ton of videos here on YouTube going over on how you can apply For a business credit card and get Approved even if you don't have a Business now I would say the business Credit cards are still a bit more Optional it's not going to apply to Every single person and if you're Content just with personal credit cards You could skip this route but I would Still highly highly recommend going Through it eventually what I did was Downgrade my staff I preferred to the Regular Sapphire this is because there Is a rule called The Chase Sapphire 48 Month bonus rule where I made sure I got The initial bonus with the Chase Staff I Preferred I then downgraded the card Kept the bonus and then I would have to Wait 48 months which is actually a very Long time it's about four years before I Can receive another bonus and that's Where I would get the Chase Sapphire Reserve next I also planned it Accordingly where I knew it was during That time I wouldn't be traveling much

But I knew four years down the road I Would be making a bit more money than I Was back then and I could actually Utilize the full benefits of the Chase Sapphire Reserve card if you do find Positive value with the sapphire Preferred I would just keep it 95 a year Doesn't really add up to be much and as Long as you're still traveling even just Once or twice a year I believe it's Still able to give you pause positive Roi just understand your own miles may Vary so at least do the math for Yourself so after I was able to get all Through the Chase Ink cards I then got The Chase Freedom card this year is now Going to be the Chase Freedom Flex Version I don't think you need to Crisscross back and forth but if you are Able to get it you're then pretty much Completing the chase Trifecta at this Point earlier on and the next card that I would then consider getting is the American Express gold card now the American Express old card is a great All-around card for pretty much everyone You don't have to travel to justify the Price you get a solid welcome bonus Offer and plus you earn points on pretty Much any time you eat out or you spend Money at the grocery store now I still Have the AmEx gold card in my wallet I Think this is a keeper for almost Everyone as long as you're eating out

Just the bare minimum of what the annual Fee provides but even aside from that You get so many credits with the Ubereats and even like Shake Shack GrubHub whatever it is it essentially Brings down the annual fee to less than 50 a year to hold and if you're spending On this card you're breaking even easily I know that there's opportunity cost Especially when it comes to using an Annual fee card versus some of the no Annual fee cards but that's going to go Outside the scope of this video after You get the AmEx gold card you pretty Much open the door for you to get any One of American Express's Flagship Products which includes some of the Platinum cards as well at this point It's a matter of personal preference on What you want to do and I see it similar To how if you ever play Pokemon you can Choose between Squirtle Charizard or Bulbasaur this is because instead of Getting the Chaser and flex card if I Decide to go with Capital One the Quicksilver card or even one of American Express's earlier beginner tier cards it Would then make sense for me to apply For another one of their higher tier Premium cards which could be the Platinum card or the Capital One Venture X Card regardless the most important Thing is freedom Flex card Sapphire Preferred get the AmEx gold and then

From there you could pivot into other Different cards that fit your own Spending criteria if you don't want to Jump into the annual fee cards too quick You can then go ahead and get something Like the build card which I think is a Fantastic card currently which was not Available three to four years back now By the way if you're someone who pays Rent this card is an absolute no-brainer Um I own a home now I don't even pay Rent anymore I used to pay rent for the Last three to four years but even Without me paying rent currently this Card is still great and it's a keeper Card that I have within my wallet at This point there are a ton of different Cards that you can get I even added the Amazon Visa card I have the Amazon Business this Prime card and I get five Percent on my Amazon purchases so I Maximize my category there if you decide Okay you want to travel a lot more you Want to get right into the Platinum Cards you're more than ready enough to Get into it and at that point I got the Platinum card and then I even got the Business platinum card I was going a Little crazy and I still hold both of Those cards to this day now one of my Favorite cards that I added to this list Because pretty much after you get the Gold card and you get the ink cards this Is optional but even some of the hotel

Branded cards can be great if you know You're staying at a hotel within their Brand every single year now with my Marriott bomboy card which also gives me Marriott bomboy Gold status and my world Of high card which also gives me Explorist status with these two cards Here if I'm paying say as an example a 95 annual fee which I do and I get a Hotel room for two to three hundred Dollars that right there gives me Positive value on a trip that I would Have already booked now I know there's a Lot of cards and within the setup you Can definitely mix and match there are Some great great offerings we even Recently made a video talking about the U.S Bank credit card lineup and there Are some sleepers within that brand too But I would say your general rule of Thumb is to at least start with four Core cards if they're all annual fee Cards it's still fine but eventually get Into the mid-tier cards like the Chase Sapphire preferred and then get into the MX gold card and then from there you can Decide which one you want what's great About the entire credit card system is That you don't need to follow a specific System to the T if you like a certain Card more than the other just go for That one because this here is a Long-term game that could last you Anywhere from five to even 10 years or

More there are new credit cards coming Out there are upgrades being made and Every single time that happens you can Just apply for a new card get the Welcome bonus offer keep those points Downgrade cancel the card if you need to But you're still racking up and Accumulating more points to come out Ahead now the biggest lesson here is Patience within this journey while we All want to climb at the credit card Tier list quickly we also want to do it As wise as possible understand that a Lot of the times each card is going to Be a step up the ladder and each step Strengthens your credit card and gets You closer to those top tier cards where Eventually if y'all end up balling out You could get the JP Morgan Reserve card Or even the AmEx Centurion card the Biggest tip I'm Gonna Leave You guys With is just take it step by step play Your cards wisely and soon enough you'll Be able to find yourself at the top Enjoying a lot of those Elite benefits Now that's gonna be the full video here If at all you guys are interested in Applying for any one of these cards that I mentioned I have full reviews here on This YouTube channel and I also have Links Down Below in the description Where you can learn more about some of These cards and what welcome bonus Offers they have now on top of that if
