Re: Credit Wish List

I'm pretty happy with what I have now for the moment.  But at some point in the future I think I'd like an Amex charge card (Zync if it comes back? I want a charge card but I'd like to minimize my annual fee) and I want a mastercard eventually.  Not entirely sure what card exactly, but I'd like to round out my payment networks since I have Visa, Amex and Discover.  Open to recommendations though I probably won't apply for anything until next summer at least.

Citi Forward ($1700)
Discover IT ($1500)
Chase Freedom ($1000)
AMEX BCE ($2000)

I have an few in mind that i may want to try and apply for next summer sometime. 

 

1. Cap One Quicksilver- i will take the 1.5%  flat rate on everything.

2. CSP/Amex SPG- still trying to decide which to get leaning toward CSP since i already have an chase freedom card.

3. Barclays Reward- This one isn't as important but I would eventually like to have an cashback mastercard.


Is there a certain airline you fly mostly? Or certain trips you would like to use your rewards for? That will make your CSP vs SPG decision much easier.

I use to love PCs, heck, i'll be straight out honest - I use to build PCs from scratch and sell them to people, mainly high school students (laugh at me, I know i was the biggest nerd ever). Anyhoo, decided to go for a macbook air because i needed something very light for travel.

 

Never going back to PCs again...

Re: Credit Wish List

The fidelity Amex private client card looks nice though. I would get it if it weren't for the AF. The card has nice benefits but it just isn't suitable for me. So if I were to get it, I'm literally forking out $200 yearly for its looks just to get around that green card, so that wouldn't make any sense at all.

You can check out citi and Barclay cards too! Can't think of any others right now.

@enharu

Thought about Barclays Arrival more than once. For some reason they keep getting kicked off the list. Guess I don't need them. I think you have all the Citi cards
