My wife and I closed on our house, so I was finally able to go on a spree to get some better cards before gardening... Here's what I ended up with:
Amex BCE - $7k
Barclays UPromise Rewards - $350 (what?)
Amazon Rewards Visa - $5k
CSP - $10k
Pretty happy with the results, and definitely ready to stop while I'm ahead!
Any thoughts on what to do with my Capital One cards? I've had them for 3-5 years and haven't made much progress CL-wise, though I have a perfect payment history and use them responsibly. They both have AF (which they won't waive), so I'm considering just closing them out.

call backdoor on upromise and see what's up with that. they can recon limit instantly through that number.
capital one 800-955-1455 - call them and ask for a cli on all your accounts and upgrade to quicksilver and if you have any af for them to be waived... don't be afraid to ask for $5-7k+... they will counter.

I suggest emailing over calling. Aim high - they will counteroffer if they feel what you are asking for is too high. You should be able to get rid of the AFs too.
