Re: 6 Secrets to Managing Multiple Credit Cards

The sticker specifically was for AF's, and that's too narrow a viewpoint I suggest.

 

Even with my limited grocery bill I still make more in rewards with the BCP than I would with a BCE even with the $75 AF pulled out, and for the big spenders the rewards dwarf the AF's associated with most cards (see Amex Gold/Plat/Chase CSP/etc).  To say nothing when I finally do move and one of my first priorities after that is learning how to cook, then the BCP will really shine comparitively.

 

Anyway, doing otherwise is penny wise and pound foolish potentially; for larger spenders, most "good" cards have AF's.

 

Starting Score: EQ 04 561, TU 98 567, EX 98 599 (12/30/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 693, EQ 8 714, TU 8 710, EX 8 724 (05/27/16)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/17)

Re: 6 Secrets to Managing Multiple Credit Cards

I figure the sign up bonus is worth a few years AF in most cases. I only have 2 cards with AF right now (CSP and BCP) but they are both great cards with specific purposes. I may downgrade or switch in the future but the totals aren't anything im going to sweat over.
