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 :smileyvery-happy:

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.
