Try to apply for the cards in same 30 day period so the inquiries won't hurt your score as bad as if you did it every month.  They give you a break when you're shopping around for same type of credit, only 1 inquiry counts against your score if you apply within same 30 day period for same type of credit.

  1. If you apply for several credit cards within a short period of time, multiple inquiries will appear on your report. Looking for new credit can equate with higher risk, but most Credit Scores are not affected by multiple inquiries from auto, mortgage or student loan lenders within a short period of time.
