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
If one also has BoA checking account, then the BoA Cash Rewards actually destroys BCP in the gas category. 3.3% return on the regular Cash Rewards, and 4.5% return on the Privileges Cash Rewards. Also, the "all other spending" category returns 1.1%/1.5% versus the 1% on BCP.
My wallet's in my sig, but here it is with more detail on how I use it:
Wal-Mart - Gas card. At $0.15 off per gallon I'm saving 4.2% on their already best-in-the-area premium gas prices. They may go back to $.05 at the end of the year, in which case I'll push gas over to the BoA Cash Rewards.
BoA Cash Rewards - 2.2% Groceries, 3.3% Gas when there's no WalMart around, everyday spending when my low limit allows it.
AmEx Zync - Paying cable and phone bills (2x points Connect Pack). Shopping at REI, Patagonia, local green businesses (2x points Eco pack), Travel purchases for work and pleasure (2x points Go Pack - not bad until I can get a higher tier travel card), department store shopping (2x points Style pack), everyday spending overflow from BoA since AmEx has me on a much higher hidden limit than the piddly $500 I get from BoA. Basically this is my most-used card right now - practically everything but Gas, Groceries, and Dining goes here.
BestBuy RewardZone - Shopping at Best Buy, and dining, since it is my only dining rewards card right now.
Barclaycard Apple Financing - Right now, just small purchases each month to keep it active. Once the new iPads are announced, I'll be using it to finance my upgrade at 0%.
In addition, I typically carry my HSA (Health Savings Account) debit card, my checking debit card, my health plan cards, and a few bills.

I have a Johnston & Murphy "super slim" wallet with 3 credit card slots - which means no apping since there's no room to carry any new cards!
