So these are the only 3 cards you're considering for this round?
Are you holding off on Fidelity Amex because FIA pulls EX as well? Or you don't think that card will benefit you as much

Ah I see. I was debating about whether to apply for fidelity Amex.
After much thought, I figured I'm better off charging misc. charges to my CSP as well. Even though it's just 1UR per dollar, I can milk each UR for >3ccp easily, so essentially it's >3% cashback even for basic purchases. Hopefully my Math didn't fail me.

That's exactly what I'm thinking. Between Freedom, Discover, Amex and ? I think I'm pretty covered. Next year, I'll probably add a revolver.
FIA Amex would render your Walmart -> Discover upgrade moot. Actually so would the CSP I think .
I haven't quite understood the forum member's desire to upgrade their Wally store cards to the Discover version, is there something I'm missing as even for me and my wretched credit report, a 1% flat rewards card is a tradeline farm for me?
