What cards are YOU aiming for next year?


 

1.  App before the end of Jan for an Amex BCP or BCE.

 

2.  Product change from Freedom or app for Chase Sapphire Preferred.  (Hopefully I can PC, my total # of cards is about right.)

 

3.  Upgrade from Cap1 Cash to World Mastercard.  (Exec rep promised this would happen at the next review.)

 

4.  PC Orchard card to another TBD Capital One product.  (Expect this to occur in Q2, AF is already removed forever.)

 

 

 

If all goes as planned, I should have a nice wallet full of prime cards, without any hit to my AAOA.

 

 


A Capital One card with a chip in it...how fancy!

Yeah, I must admit it's the first Capital One credit card that caught my eye! :smileylol:

I know, right?  Not sure if this is what it actually looks like, but I hope so.  I'll find out soon enough.

Re: Goal cards for 2013

I'm looking at a few cards for the upcoming year:

 

1. Cap1 Cash Rewads - I'll drop my Cap1 Journey Student Rewards card for this one.

2. Citi AA Cards - Either the World MC (Not the World Elite MC) or the Gold Visa. Love American Airlines, want to accumulate more miles.

3. Marriott Rewards - Also in their rewards program, and I want some free nights, man.

 

All of this is contingent upon me getting a real job after graduation, naturally...



Cards: CitiForward for Students (2K, opened 8/2009), Discover it (2K, opened 7/2010), AMEX BCE (1k, opened 12/2010), Capital One Quicksilver (4.5k, opened 11/2011), Chase Freedom (1.5k, opened 8/2014)

AMEX Platinum (NPSL, AC arrangement, added 12/2011), Citi AAdvantage AMEX (9k, AU, backdated to 9/2008)

Scores: TU 667, EQ 651

In the Garden since 8/8.

You should consider asking them to PC it for you, to keep the account age.
