Re: What Credit Card Do You Use When You're On a Date!?

[ Edited ]

Back when I had better credit it was ALWAYS the American Express card. By far the most easily recognizable card on the market and always regarded as a symbol of wealth regardless of how misguided this stereotype is.

 

Trust me though, guys, you are better off pulling out your First Premier card on a first date. If that's the reason they don't want a second date then you would have had MUCH bigger problems than which credit card to use on a date.

Wallet: JP Morgan Select $10k | CSP $10k | Citi TY Premier $7k | AMEX SPG $5k | AMEX PRG NPSL | Barclaycard $5k | Discover IT $10k | Chase Freedom $3k | CapOne Quicksilver $3k | BofA Cash Rewards $8k | Walmart Card $5k | Amazon Card $10k | Chase Auto 1.49% | Joined myFICO 6/12 with a 540 FICO & now I'm over 750! The membership has more than paid for itself!

Ha!  What's a date?  It's been so long that I have to pay someone to take me out - no need to use my cards.  :smileyhappy:
