18 years old with these cards and limits.

Cap 1 secured-650 limit

Cap 1 unsecured -750 

Discover it-1500

Chase freedom-3000

Walmart discover-3000

 

Recently approved for a few cards

 

Amex BCE- approved for 3k

 

Citi Simplicity 4.5k.

 

Should the simplicity be my main card for rewards?

 

I believe i have enough cards for the next 5 years lol.

 

any constructive criticism?

Definitely enough credit cards. Congrats on your approvals. Just remember to use your credit wisely. Once it goes bad it will take years to recover.

JPMorgan Palladium (100k), AmEx Platinum (NPSL), AmEx SPG (46k), AmEx BCP (42k), Chase Sapphire Preferred (47k), Citi Prestige (31k), Citi Thank You Preferred (27k), Citi Executive AAdvantage (25k), JPMorgan Ritz-Carlton (21k), Merrill+ (15k), US Bank Cash+ (22.5k), Wells Fargo (12k), Bloomingdale’s (12.4k), Chase Freedom (5k), Discover IT (5k).

I'd get rid of the Cap1 cards (assuming they have annual/monthly fees *glares at the secured credit card*).

Can you let me know when you applied for each card?
