What's In Your Wallet?

I know this has been done multiple times, but given the changing landscape (introduction of CSR, higher than usual SPG bonus, Prestige changes, changes to Amex Plat etc.) I thought it might provide a healthy discussion as well as maybe shed some light on the cards we thought we wanted or need to get rid of.

Currently I carry:
- CSR: dining and travel (not gas, excludes Marriott/SPG stays)
- TY Premier: gas, entertainment (I'm partial to Qatar airways)
- SPG: general spend, Marriott/SPG stays
- Amex Plat: some flights, lounge access, warranty protection

Discover IT for gas bonus


Everything else is confined to my safe because I can't NOT spend.
