So overall my goal wallet is:

Barclay SallieMae World  Mastercard - 5% Gas

American Express Blue Cash Preferred - 6% Groceries

US Bank Cash+ Visa Signature - 5% Cell / 5% Fast Food / 2% Drug Store

 

  

Whats yours?

You dont have to include store cards if you wish because i have a few that im not including but are gonna keep.
