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. 

EX = 849 EQ = 850 TU = 850 as of 07/2017

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).
