If you could have only one....

Okay here's the rules, you can have ONE prime CC, which would it be and why? Cent and Paladium are excluded, I want to go for something most can get their hands on.  I'll start:


Even though my Amex Green is my go-to b/c of the MR and the ability to revolve large purchases, I'd probably pick my Chase SP due to the exceptional rewards program if I had to have just one. 


Have fun :smileyhappy:

I use my Amex Platinum card the most. The travel benefits pay the annual fee 3x over for me every year. I don't have to worry about carrying balances, just PIF.
