Re: What's Your Favorite CC for Each of These Categories

Everyday? Was Amex BCP, now it's BoA Travel Privileges (although I may use my Discover card next month to take advantage of the $500 CB)


Big Ticket? Either Amex of Discover - I don't have many large charges, except my tuition bill Smiley Very Happy.


Emergencies? All of my cards are on regular rotation, although I would likely use my Amex if I needed to carry a balance as it's under 0% APR until next year.  I would say the Avenue card my mother opened, but I can't fit any of their clothes, so I doubt I'd have an emergency that required me to use that card haha.
