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

It'd have to be  between my Amex Green and My BCE.

I would have to agree with the OP and also say the "Chase Freedom" love the rewards and cashback Smiley Very Happy

My cap1...cause it has my highest limit (wow, that's not something you hear every day)

If I could pick any card to use (even one I didn't have) it'd be either a Centurion, or a palladium....I just want to order palladium replacement cards and melt them down...

So hard to pick just one, but if I had to, it would be Amex's SPG.  

 

However, I think the US Bank Cash card would be the ideal "one" card for cash rewards.

I would carry US Bank Cash+  Between the gold checking package and redemption bonus.  It has the highest flat cash back rate for a card that also has accelerated rewards at 1.5% (or just over).  6.5% on bill pay is fantastic since bills are always there and high no matter what.   Then the ability to pick an additional 6.5% category based on what i might buy is invaluable.  On top of that its a Visa.  Just hope they don't lower the rewards.

 

A close second would be the Fidelity Amex, but with no backup card Amex still isn't quite as widely accepted where I live as Visa/Mastercard.

Can't disagree with any of the above.  This is the first cash back card I've ever found compelling.  I don't understand why anyone who wants cash back wouldn't just apply and use this as their main card.  Freedom and Discover can take a back seat to this one.

 

If they keep it this way (which I hope they do), this will be THE most sought after cashback card.  I'm glad to see an issuer other than Chase and Amex offer a very compelling product.  Competition can only benefit us consumers.

If i were to have an ideal card, id be the us bank cash+.

And choosing from the card i currently have, it would be amex bcp. X3cli around the corner and amex cardholder benefits beat them all. There is no place in miami i go to where they take discover and not amex.

I think I'm going to have to switch my vote since then last time I posted. For me it's now my United MP Club WEMC. It has tons of benefits and earning power all in one card.
