Re: PIF and credit card rewards

For me it is pretty simple as I only have 2 rewards cards and one just gives 1% cash back unless I find something in their rewards mall that gives bonus cash back. The other provides 5% cash back in rotating categories so I try to focus charging only what gives me 5% cash back on that card..
Cards: Orchard Bank ($1100) | Cap1 Cash Rewards ($2500) | Chase Freedom ($1000) | Best Buy ($2500) | Discover It ($1000) | Barclay Rewards ($2500) | Current scores: EX FAKO: 684, CK TU: 649, FICO EQ: 680, FICO TU: 698, FICO EX: 658 Happy Homeowner Since 2/6/13! :smileyhappy: Last App: 4/5/13 Gardening until July 2014

Discover has the best shopping portal, so I simply use my Discover for all online shopping.

Re: PIF and credit card rewards

I have 7 cards.  Honestly, having a smartphone makes it easy to keep track of them.  I use Manilla to access all of them at once on my phone, plus I have all 4 of my lenders' web apps so I can monitor specific activity on each card.

 

If I have a new card that has a certain spend that needs to be met to achieve  the signup bonus, then I prioritize use of that card.  Once I've met spend, I return to regular usage of all cards for their various rewards categories. 

TU: 757 (12/14/14) | EQ: 761 (1/18/15) | EX: 760 (1/18/15)
