Whats your combo?

[ Edited ]

Well i was just thinking what i want my wallet to have in it before i close everything else, i think this thread is geared mostly to those with less than stellar credit because you are working toward something but those of you with stellar but still dont have your combo are welcome to post also.... So overall my goal wallet is:

 

Discover IT- 5% Rotating Categories

CapitalOne QuickSilver - 1.5% Non-Category 

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.
