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

PNC Cashbuilder or Fidelity 2% Rewards. The PNC I love because they are my main bank so it is easy to make payments to it. Also easy to redeem rewards and has a high limit with 1.75% cashback. The Fidelity is, as the name suggests, 2% cashback so is the highest base rewards card but American Express is not accepted everywhere. I do not know if I would be able to choose between those two. I would lean more towards the Visa though.

Hm, am I the only one willing to carry an AmEx only, and have half the world's merchants closed to me?  LOL

I would carry my Amex Blue Cash Preferred...I love it so much, I'm willing to not do business with merchants that won't accept it!

It may just be me and my very odd ways, but I will never pull centurion out for McDonalds or similar merchants.

Amex PR Gold.  I can carry cash for the few places that don't take Amex or the really small purchase.

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

It absolutely wouldn't be any American Express product because of acceptance issues. I would say my Chase Sapphire Visa.
