Re: How many Credit Cards do you have?

Just 4, still waiting on the Kay card so I can put it in a sock (I really do, put it in a dirty sock and into my gun safe)... I am also waiting on my CapOne replacement, as my old card no longer would read.

Thumbs up to you!

 

Keep your eyes open and make note of what CC's will work for you on down the line.

 

Make them work for you, not you for them. :smileywink:

That's not a good card and they give very low limits.  I closed my GM HSBC last year.  It was the first card I closed when I cleaned up my portfolio.  .

Re: How many Credit Cards do you have?

5 personal 3 biz. I might get another one in the next few months, but I would probably close one with a lower limit/AF.

 

I really don't want more than 5 or 6 just from an accounting standpoint.

 

What do you people with so many cards use to manage them all? Quicken, a calendar, post-it notes, or what?
