PSECU -- good for purchases (9.9), BTs (2.9), and cash advances (9.9).

 

Also generous CLs.

Minor emergency Barclay Reward MC, major emergency Discover IT.  Fortunately, there haven't been any I haven't been able to handle with cash/debit.

Capital One - The only way i'd be using those ridiculous rate cards would be in a dire emergency. Life or death situation and ALL of my other cards better be maxed the heck out before I ever dust those 2 cards off. hate crap 1

I've never really thought of it.

I guess it'd depend on the emergency. But ideally the 1 with 0% APR or low APR & the credit limit to cover the cost.

^This.

 

I don't actually have a card with a big enough CL to rely on it.

 

I have to use multiple cards when there's an emergencie, Which kills everything for me.
