Re: TOP 5 MUST HAVE CREDIT CARDS

There are so many cards out there. Right now I just have orchard card and secured BOA card. I dont want to have like 20 cards. I want 5 credit cards. That way it would be easy to manage credit cards

For me:
 
1.) Amex Centurion (Black Card) by invitation only
2.) Coutts & Co. World Card by invitation only
3.) BoA U.S. Airways Visa Signature
4.) Hooters!
5.) FIA Fidelity Investment Visa Platinum
 
Are you looking for rewards, cash back, low APR, low intro rates?

Here are a few:
 
Amex Blue and Blue cash, great cash back, excellent customer service, generous CLI
Amex Rewards Plus Gold Charge Card (PIF), the best rewards program that exists
FIA Fidelity Plat Visa, cash back for investing
CITI Dividens Plat MC, very good cash back card for everyday things, gas, groceries and etc.
