My credit journey

I was lamenting about the fact that there were no more cards that I wanted a few months back on this forum.  I then apped for and was approved for the Chase Freedom and the Chase Sapphire Preferred.   I changed my spending habits a little bit and then apped for the Citi Thank you preferred last month.  I have a host of credit cards right now, and I use all of them except my Kroger 123 rewards ( I wish I had been on a credit card forum before applying for that card) and my Amex PRG.  I'll be cancelling the Amex PRG before the annual fee hits again and probably replacing it with something else.  Technically, I guess I'm in the garden until July-August timeframe.  I haven't posted here in a while, so I thought I would share my credit journey.

Re: My credit journey

I almost forgot. I converted my Platinum cash rewards to another platinum rewards card.  I'm happy with that decision.
