If you could only carry 1 card which would it be?

If you could only carry 1 card which would it be?

A couple days ago I asked how many credit cards people actually carry with them in their wallets on a daily basis. I was surprised by how many some of you guys carry! As a follow up question I thought it would be fun to ask if you could only keep 1 of your cards (cards you already have, NOT cards you want) which would it be and why?

 

I'll get the ball rolling. I have 2 Amex revolvers, Chase Freedom, and Citi Forward.

 

Keep Chase Freedom.

 

Amex is not accepted everywhere and too unstable to be a sole financial partner with their FR/AA. Outside the bonus categories Citi Forward has meager rewards.

This is hard... I would have to go with sapphire preferred due to acceptance, rewards, no foreign fees, and benefits.

Keep in mind everyone the rule of the game is you have to choose among the cards you already have Smiley Happy

 

Not questioning whether so many people have Centurions but I'm sure that's at the top of a lot of people's wish lists!

Thing about Cent is acceptance with Amex cards. It draws attention also which you may not want.
