Looking for a Mastercard...Suggestions?

Hi All, 

 

Just got approved for a AMEX BCE with a $5,200 cl. I am very happy with my portfolio, but lack a mastercard and I just returned from a trip abroad and saw that mastercard and visa run the international credit card world. Any suggestions would be great!

Forward, Zync, Freedom, BofA Cash Rewards

Current Score: 738 BOA Experian (5/29/2012)

GOAL: 800s

Just thought of this not sure if anyone has tried it. Is it possible to switch my freedom to a MC, currently a visa?
