No plans for any new cards; just hope to stay under the radar with all the new CL I have added over the past 18 mos; will probably be cutting some Cap1 cards when AF comes due; not cutting any others unless they CLD me.......worked too hard to get'em

Re: what's in your wallet? 2015 edition.

Currently just have my EDP, Plat, and one non-AmEx card in my wallet. We'll see about the Plat after I meet the spend requirement for bonus MR

NFCU cashRewards - ED card

Chase Marriott - Met 2k spend bonus, use it for dining occassionaly since I don't have a dining card yet, AARP is on my shortlist

Chase Freedom - Rotating categories, no APR on it for a while Smiley Happy

NFCU goRewards - had a 2k spending bonus I just met, moving to bench soon

Best Buy card - just in case I need a spontaneous purchase at BBY



Capital One Plat (will try to get rewards added on by EO)

Capital One QS1 (will try to get AF waived this year or hopefully permanentely, probably closing one of these)

Overstock (use it as needed with OS, was happy I got a SCT to work lol)



I cut a bunch of cards in late 2014 (AAFES Star Card, Merrick, NFCU nRewards (secured)

Leaning toward cutting the QS1 if I can get the Cap1 Plat PCed into QS1, since QS1 has a lot lower limit and an AF.  It does has a lower APR than the Plat but I always PIF now...


Current FICOs [03/08/2017]: EQ 708 | TU 738 | EXP 718 | Past FICOs: [06/2013]: EQ 573 | TU 585 | EXP 541 |

Re: what's in your wallet? 2015 edition.

In wallet;


Chase CSP

Chase Freedom

Chase Marriott Rewards (when it arrives)

Citi DC

Amex BCE

Discover IT



Cards that I do not carry;


PayPal Extras MC

Chase Amazon Rewards

NASAFCU Visa Platinum

Barclay Sallie Mae World MC 

US Bank 123 Rewards 



Small re-occuring charges on Paypal MC / Chase Amazon / US Bank / NASAFCU.  Wife carries Sallie Mae and uses at grocery, but annoyed with pathetic small cap.


If I were going to close any cards, it would be the following;


PayPal Extras MC (5k CL)

NASAFCU Visa (30k CL)

Chase Amazon (1.5k CL) 

Barclay Sallie Mae MC (5k)

US Bank 123 Rewards (5k)


However, I will just keep doing what I am doing to pad my file.  The NASAFCU is good for utilization, but I only let one card report so there is really no need for the utilization help.


Future plans is to PC BCE to BCP and use exclusevly at grocery store - I will then put Sallie Mae in SD and use only for purchases.  May close Rewards as well.  US Bank 123 Rewars is worthless to me, but I keep just to have relationship with US Bank.
