Re: Goal Cards

[ Edited ]

My goal cards tend be the ones I was previously denied for. Makes me want me to pursue them even more. Two in particular are...

CSP- To compliment the Freedom card

Barclaycard Hawaiin Airlines MC- For the sign-up bonus

Credit is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master.

Re: Goal Cards

To be perfectly fair, I think I pretty much have all the cards I'd want in terms of cash back rewards.  If I had to choose any, it would be the Discover IT card; I've never been with their network before.

American Express Blue Cash Everyday $25000
Barclays Sallie Mae World MasterCard $25000
Capital One Quicksilver World MasterCard $25000
Chase Freedom Visa Signature $25000
Discover IT $27000
US Bank Cash+ Visa Signature $25000
BofA Travel Rewards $18000

Re: Goal Cards

I probably have everything I need right now, but eventually I'd like to PC my NFCU cashRewards to the Platinum since I don't use it for anything at the moment, and then pick up a Chase Freedom and an AmEx BCP. Other than that, the cards that I want are strictly for sign up bonuses (Hyatt, United, etc.).

Starting Scores: myFICO EQ: 678, myFICO TU: 676, myFICO EX: 678 (01/2013)

My Wallet: American Express BCE, NFCU cashRewards, Capital One Quicksilver, Discover It, Chase Freedom, Chase Amazon Rewards

Re: Goal Cards

This is tough because I need to avoid overlapping the fiancée's collection.


 We  go to the grocery store nearly everyday, and I'm sure we'd spend pretty darn close to the BCP and it's just the two of us. If we fly, we'll fly Delta. Charge card just because. Discover it for the no FTF and TU FICO. Lowe's and Ace because I'm buying a house by the end of the month and I'll be doing remodelling/repairing of the place, and Ace is in town while Lowe's is 30 minutes away. Wings Financial because they're my CU and it'd be easy to manage them.


I can probably get the Lowe's card and the Wings Visa Platinum this year. The rest of them I'll probably have to wait a long while.

Re: Goal Cards

I've been obsessing over this.  ATM, I have all Visas save my First Premier that's going bye bye next month.  Discover It is on the short list, and I want an AM EX, and a new Mastercard, but not sure which yet. 


Definitely exploring good Travel Rewards cards right now.  I've had a wanderlust for the last couple of years that I haven't been able to sate just yet. 

In the garden until debt is paid off and scores are up!
