Re: What's your emergency card?

Any of my Chase UR cards, CSP, Pd, Freedom. Though if it was a "real" emergency, I doubt I would care what rewards I was getting.

Re: What's your emergency card?

Most of my cards can handle most emergencies I can think of. If I am thinking about utilization/APR/carrying a balance, I'd probably go with the NFCU cashRewards ($25k CL/9.x APR IIRC), and it would get paid off ASAP with the emergency fund, sold investments, etc.

Re: What's your emergency card?

Theoretically my PRG is my emergency card because it has no PSL, however my Delta card has my highest revolving limit and carries no balance so that technically is my emergency card.


AmEx PRG (NPSL) | AmEx Costco ($8.2K) | AmEx Delta Gold ($19.3K) | AmEx BCE ($5K) | Chase United Explorer ($10K) | Chase Sapphire Preferred ($7.5K) | Chase Freedom ($8.2K) | Discover it ($3K) | Capital One Quicksilver ($2.5K) | PayPal Extras ($2.5K) | Lowes ($3.3K) | Walmart ($4.3K) | Amazon ($2.5K) | Restoration Hardware ($8.8K) | Crate & Barrel ($8.3K)

Have you considered that not all merchants take AMEX? Also, even though it's NPSL, it can be declined for abnormally high charges. I'd stick with known limit cards that most merchants take for an emergency card.

 

As for me, my 5K NFCU goRewards MasterCard. I keep it in my glovebox for all types of emergencies, including losing my wallet and whatnot. I also have a 15K NFCU LOC, but I can't imagine what kind of emergency would require that much money that insurance doesn't cover. Maybe getting out of jail?

Re: What's your emergency card?

Lol maybe getting out of jail...

I've run into merchants that only take card from a certain network so that would play into my ultimate choice.

It seems like some CU are giving low APR with high CL from reading these post. Interesting as I've never looked to get a card at CU.
