Not the ones that are sock drawered. I don't like a over cluttered wallet, but I do have a woman's style wallet that holds my sock drawered cards.

 

 

USAA debit card 1% Foreign Transaction fees and 5 free atm withdraws from any ATM in America. Can also transfer money from my Chase or BOA account immediately with the app if needed. (I only keep $500 in here so if someone steals it they won't get much)

 

Chase Sapphire 0% Foreign Transaction fees, 2 to 1 on travel and dining and nice shopping rewards mall which can get upto 20% discount on rotating items. and the sign up bonus was quite nice.

 

Amex BCP for 6% groceries, 3% gas and department stores.

 

---------------------

 

now next cards that could enter my wallet is

 

Amex Platnium cause I want the conserige service, free global entry, free club access at airports, free room upgrades etc.

US Cash +  for 5% off restaurants and 5% off on Bill pay.

 

 


Chase Freedom (primary)

USAA Amex (just in case)

two debit cards in case I need cash, one is a co-op network card so I can use it at any CO-OP credit union atm, 7-11, etc.. ...  ..

lol it's as man as it can get, it's just all black my excuse is it's RFID secured lol, it stays in my car with my other debit cards, I should just go to the local banks and ask for a ATM card just incase someone steals it out of my car =\ since I can just transfer funds if I want with phone apps.

Why do you keep the BOA cash rewards around? =O seems like BCP destroys that card by far , looks like sock drawer material to me :smileyhappy:

also no Chase Trifecta? :smileyhappy:    (chase checking, sapphire, freedom) combined together the benefits are quite nice.

Re: What do you ACTUALLY carry in your wallet?

Easy and best for rewards based on how I spend.

 

1. USAA World Master Card.

2. Amex Blue Cash Everyday.

3. PenFed Cash Rewards Visa.

4. Cap One (Green) Cash Rewards Visa.

5. Target Visa.

 

This combo works well for me.

Re: What do you ACTUALLY carry in your wallet?

I mostly use my Household Bank Rewards MasterCard as it has good rewards and no AF.  (However, it is basically a toy limit.)

I also use my Barclays Reward MasterCard some times as it also has no AF and the rewards are OK, but a bit confusing.  They do offer some promotions at times.

 

I don't use my Capone card.  You can read all you want about them to figure out why!

 

 

 

 

 


Grow little seedling grow.

Rethink every purchase you make, before you make it. Use the card with the best rewards. Pay in full each month. Redeem rewards often. Use the cards online shopping for more discounts. Smile, knowing that being thrifty allows you to actually get more out of the same amount of money!
