    I have some upcoming big spend approx. $50K(medical) I would like to put on credit cards. I already have Amex Gold, CSP, and Freedom for points reference. I am at 4/24,so I am trying to figure out what are the best credit cards to apply for to maximize points. I was thinking Freedom unlimited, then Capital one venture and/or Citi Premier. I am not sure if Capital one and Citi have similar 5/24 restrictions like chase, but if I apply for all within a few minutes will that be a way around those restrictions? Any other suggestions on credit card combos?

    Freedom Unlimited first since you're at 4/24. Can you get a business card? Amex Blue for Business gets 2x MRs on all purchases.

    I'm not sure about C1's limits though the rumor is they pull from all 3 credit bureaus. Citi has some limits about how often you can apply for their own cards but if you don't have any you should be fine there.
