2 at one time.  Rotate one of them weekly but the Chase MileagePlus Club Visa stays in there.

Oh, and big credit card folio wallet locked at home with the rest of the collection...I have a separate one for business credit/debit cards that I carry on business trips (so more like 5-6 at that point).
