Carry most of the cards in my signature, with the exception usually of the "store" cards...Home Depot/Lowes/Lumber Liquidators.  They come out for specifc purpose.  Thinking of adding the Wells Fargo,1st Command,  and BankAmericard Cash Rewards cards to that group in the sock drawer,  especially once the Merrill Lynch Plus  and IberiaBank Select cards arrive. 

Diners Club Premier MasterCard $50K / AMEX Gold NPSL / AMEX Zync NPSL / AMEX Blue Cash Preferred $14K / Bank of America Cash Rewards Signature Visa $15K / Merrill Lynch Plus Signature Visa $15K / Wells Fargo Propel 365 $15K / Chase Sapphire Preferred Signature Visa $10K / J P Morgan Select Signature Visa $10K / Chase Slate Visa $6K / CITI Diamond Preferred MasterCard $13.2K / Discover IT $10.5K / IberiaBank Select Visa $8K / 1st Command Bank Platinum Visa $7.5K // Home Depot $9.7K / Lowes $10K

An Amex and something else.


I did keep the BCP in my desk a few days to make sure it posted a $0 balance. Broke my heart tonight not using it for groceries tonight, LOL!

Re: How many cards do you carry daily?

Chase Freedom, Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Bold and JPM Palladium (along with a couple of debit cards). I used to carry the Citi Dividend card too, but have exhausted the cash back for the year so off to the SD it goes. One nice thing about having all the cards in my wallet from the same company is that if I ever lose my wallet I can make one call to my private banker and freeze everything (something I unfortunately have recent first-hand experience doing).
