Call me obsessive & crazy but I pretty much have every single one of my CC's due dates, statement dates, current balances, utilization rates, etc. memorized on a daily basis once I'm in a store or ordering something online. It's gotten to the point where I can mentally edit & change my excel spreasheet in my mind, Smiley Sad. The things this forum has done to me. Lol.

Oh gosh, so do I.  I will be standing at the checkout trying to remember which card to use...LOL!!!

 

I was thinking about getting some of those really tiny sticker labels and writing on the label the category for that card, especially with the rotating categories.  I just don't know if I will get strange looks with different color stickers on my CC's though Smiley Happy.

...decide which cards to use when you are out shopping/running errands???

 

I find myself shuffling through the cards in my wallet trying to decide which card to use while the cashier is scanning! I sometimes go through all of my cards before I make up my mind! This is what happens when you have too many rewards cards lol  Smiley Very Happy


Oh... so YOU'RE the one who's always holding up the line.  Somehow, I always seem to get behind either you, or the guy with no money on his debit card, or the old lady who wants to write a check.

Re: Anyone else can't...

It's either that or the people who wait until a minute after they learn their total to dig through their wallet/purse. Thank goodness for self-check out lines.

Re: Anyone else can't...

Reading this thread made me think about how I paid for my sisters baby shower today(for my mom she's paying me, I just wanted the points), it was over 500 dollars so I put it on my cities dividend cars to fulfill requirement and get the 100 dollar bonus, and than realized I could have used my freedom (the party was at a restaurant!) and I would have 30 dollars back and figured out a different way to spend the 500 on the dividend, dang!







Amex BCE $14k (backdated to 1/11), Chase Freedom $500 (11/2012)
Discover It Student $3k (3/13), Citi Dividend Platinum Visa $3k (3/13)
Capital One Cash Rewards Visa $3.5k (3/13)
Starting Score 3/20/13 - TransUnion FICO 758 - Goal Score 800
