My own personal Amex centurion, but I doubt that'll happen for quite awhile :smileytongue:

 

If the benefits keep on declining though, I'll have to give it a pass.

Re: Goal Cards

Amex BCP is the only other card I want.  Unless I also fall for a solid gas rewards card that doesn't only benefit me during certain quarters (eg. Fort Knox Plat Visa?)


TU98 700, TU08 700, EQ 726, EX 700 (As of 10/2014) - Personal Goal = 760+

Gardening since 8-1-14

Re: Goal Cards

I'm not working toward specific cards per se, more to round out the variety of lenders.  I would like to get in the door with Discover.  They hate me for some reason.

 

I would also like a foot in the door with Chase and Barclay.  Probably just because they both hate me also and I'm not sure why!

Re: Goal Cards

None currently (the Amex BC removed the need for some other cards I had planned) but I'm always looking out for a new card that would benefit me...

Re: Goal Cards

I'm not seeking any new credit anytime soon, but if I did, I would probably want to add something that offers some sort of travel rewards like the Amex SPG, Barclay Arrival or simply a good no FTF card like the Merrill +.

 

I would also consider the Fidelity Amex for the 2% back on everything and I like the idea of the savings being deposited into a retirement or investment account.

Re: Goal Cards

I have most of the cards I want. I do have some card goals though:

 

Marriott Premier - For the signup bonus. Just charged half the credit limit on CSP, and am waiting to pay that off before I apply. 

 

Signup bonuses - Thinking about applying for other cards as needed for signup bonuses. I might apply for some airline cards if they offer a decent amount of miles. 

 

Upgrades - Would like my Gap and Nordstrom's cards to be upgraded from store cards to Visas. 

 

 

 

Cards I Carry
$1K$5K$7.5K$12K$20K$12k$5k$6k$12.5k
Total Available Credit: $82.9k | FICOS: EX 632 | EQ 643 | TU 671
Store: Nordstrom Retail $5k and Target $300. Recently acquired: U.S. Bank Cash Rewards Visa $1k.
