Not that I think you need another card. You have a nice collection. It's a good idea to have a combo of MC, Visa and Amex. I can't tell from your post if your Bof A and Citi are all Visas or if there are any MC. So, if no MC, I'd look at adding one. Also, an Amex charge (even Zync if you want a lower AF) would give your AAoA a boost, instead of your taking the hit for a new acct.

 

I'd also look into CUs -- if not Navy, then local CUs. Personally, I think it's a good idea not to have all your eggs in the "big bank's" basket, so to speak. We've been reading about B of A and other bigger banks closing accts. CUs are IMO less likely to do things like that.

You have some nice reward cards already.  I'd personally just work on CLI's for your existing cards.

The only point of getting a MC if you don't have one is if you shop at Sams Club, otherwise no point.

Another Amex might be okay as other posted IF it's an older account but rewards wise you are holding the best I think.

and finally I kind of agree of not getting another card and just look for CLI with everyone, or maybe store card if you shop at a paticular one a lot, other wise rewards wouldn't out do Amex or Citi I don't think.
