Credit card rejected (Good Score) .....help needed applying a new one
I have American Express Blue Everyday card since last 11 months and i got a credit score of 746 now.
Recently i applied for the Amazon Chase credit card and got a reject saying "Not enough accounts opened long enough to establish a credit history". I also applied online for CapitalOne Venture one credit card and was denied.

Should i have more duration on my current credit card to apply for more credit cards. Which cards would be safe for me right now??

Try a secured card.

"Not enough accounts opened long enough to establish a credit history." 

So, you might try adding a secured card to add one more account to your history.  Or, try for a small bank loan.  You could use that for something or put it into savings and use what you borrowed to repay that loan in 4 months. Yes, you will pay a small amount in interest, but that will add to the positive accounts in your credit history.

Do make sure all accounts are paid on time and your long-term credit history will be a good one to be proud of.  It does take some time to build a history.  You are making a good start.
