Re: Whats your combo?

My Ideal Wallet-

 

Amex BCE- My gas card when I'm not using my BOFA Cash Rewards card. Also would be used for everyday purchases

Marriott Premier- Most of the time when I travel, I almost always stay with Marriott and could use it for future travel stays.

Chase Freedom- Already got this card, currently am using it for Gas this quarter but it will become my everyday purchase card once this quarter is over. Also used for the 5% period.

Chase Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus- Already got this card as well, and is generally used as my card for larger purchases...for now. Also used for non-category spend as well.

Citi AAdvantage Plat Select- I fly on AA as well, and it would be a good fit for me since the last few times I have flown with AA.

 

So generally I would SD my Discover and Forward cards and close out my PRG. And then the rest of the cards would be my Ideal wallet/combo. 

 

 

Bank of America: Cash Rewards.- 4.2k. 4/25/12 (CLI Increase 6/15/13, CLI May of 2015, sept 2015), Citi: Forward- 4.5k. 10/27/12 (CLI on 2/8/14, SP, CLI on 9/26/15 sp). Discover: More- 7k, 10/27/12 (Increase 6/1/14, CLI in May of 2015, SP 9/2015) Amex: PRG- NPSL (closed 12/13/13). 11/24/12. Chase: Freedom. 5/1/13- 5k (EX CLI HP 9/2015) Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus.-3.6k. 6/15/13. Amex BCE-2k. 12/7/13. Amex SPG-5k 12/8/13 (CLI on 9/2015) Capital one VentureOne Visa Signature-10k (9/6/15). Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World MasterCard-4K. Last App: 9/6/15. Total cl: 45,300

Re: Whats your combo?

I've pretty much apped for every card I've wanted, so as of right now I'm working with these in my wallet:

 

Discover IT - for 5% on Gas

Citi Forward  - for 5% on Dining, Amazon, Bookstores (and Groceries/Gas/Drugstores/Commuter Expenses until 9/30) - I also keep it b/c I need one Visa in my wallet on the rare chance Disc/Amex isn't accepted + 9.99 APR

Citi TY Preferred - general spend until I hit $1500 for bonus TY Points, then SD.  

Amex BCP - Groceries, Dept Stores, and General Spend after I hit TY spend amount - is my daily driver due to 0% APR

 

If I were to apply for another card, it would be the Sallie Mae card, and downgrade the BCP to BCE. Maybe Smiley Happy

Back to gardening as of 01-02-17.. 800+ across all three (via FAKOs) has been achieved! 5 INQs currently Smiley Happy
