Re: Whats your combo?

I was using my Discover IT for gas but I think I might start using my Freedom for gas this last month.

As of 2017, rebuilding...

I mainly used the BOA and CSP for daily purchases. I'll get around to getting a freedom card and a SPG, maybe January. I need to do some pruning or gardening, my goal is not to be stuck with any low limit cards under 10k cl.

AkAir $50k | Marriott $65k | Local CU $8k
