Re: Goal Cards

Only two goal cards: Chase Freedom and AMEX BCP. I will be done with apping after that.


I currently have a CSP, WF, BofA and Nordies visa. I settled my only baddie (unpaid C/O) last month and will be updated next week. I want my new accounts to be > 6 months old, so I will be gardening until August/September, or longer if they have another $200 Freedom bonus like last year.

Re: Goal Cards

No new cards in my goal outlook just yet.


I would however like to PC to the BCE from Delta.


I am trying to figure out a good gas rewards card that I could get, but actually think the BCE card is actually the best option for this with my profile.  I seem to have a problem breaking through the 700 mark.  I have been at 698 and am now at 694. 

Rethink every purchase you make, before you make it. Use the card with the best rewards. Pay in full each month. Redeem rewards often. Use the cards online shopping for more discounts. Smile, knowing that being thrifty allows you to actually get more out of the same amount of money!

Re: Goal Cards

Now that I have a card from Chase; Citi; Discover; Barclays; and American Express, and a card from all four payment networks, I'm in no rush for any new cards.\


Hell, I want to get rid of at least one before the year is out.


But that being said, I have just two cards left on my wish list: the Sapphire Preferred and the Blue Cash Everyday. Once I get those, I honestly can't see myself applying for any more credit cards.

BofA: Americard Platinum Secured  > Cash Rewards 123 Platinum Visa -> Cash Rewards 123 Visa Signature - Privileges Cash Rewards 123 Visa Signature

Merril Lynch: Merril Lynch + -> Merril Lynch Accolades (BofA Accolades)

Capital One: Platinum MasterCard -> Quicksilver MasterCard - > * Future World or Elite MasterCard
