Re: How many cards do you like to carry in your wallet?

In the last 2ish months I have been carrying a big man purse ( a Longchamp Le Pliage in the mini; for any handbag people)



To what is in my wallet...


Redcard Credit- Always- ( I originally only carried the debit version, but eventually decided I wanted the credit version I have no clue why)


Kohls Charge- Always (I guess I have an attachment to my Kohls charge? It is not like I go to Kohls everytime I am out)


Discover IT- Always (5% gas and 1% general spend)


Marvel Mastercard- Always ( 3% Fast food/ Eating out along with 1% general spend) Love that there is no cap on 3% cashback


I carry 4 cards 2 of which only work at 1 store.




I refuse to carry debit cards they stay at home in the lock box or on my night stand

Re: How many cards do you like to carry in your wallet?

it really varies for me since I keep new accounts rotating in.


At the moment I have Ritz, Amex SPG Bus, Amex Blue for Bus, and... Discover for some reason.

Re: How Many Credit Cards do you bring with you at all time?

I always carry:


1: CSR (previously CSP)

2: Freedom

3: Freedom Unlimited


I also keep my Charles Schwab Debit card on me so I can get reimbursed on any ATM fees if I urgently need cash.

Re: How Many Credit Cards do you bring with you at all time?

Since I keep my cards in a small fossil credit card holder with 5 slots...


2 debit cards - 1 NFCU, 1 PenFed


2 credit cards - 1 Disco (since I'm in my first year and want reap the 5% cats x2) and the other is rotating - right now Amex Plat for spend bonus, previously it was Ritz Carlton


1 DL kept in the middle 5th slot


Come this November/December - I'll probably lock the Disco away and go with Amex Plat and maybe the PenFed Power Cash

Re: How Many Credit Cards do you bring with you at all time?

I really need a new wallet; the pockets where I keep my store member-program cards (Food Lion MVP, Giant, Harris Teeter, Panera, Costco ID, etc.) are shot from being overstuffed so long. Smiley Tongue As for credit/debit cards, asof today I carry around my BoA debit card, my Cap One secured and unsecured MC and my transit-benefit debit card. When my Discover It comes in, I think that's really when I'll have to pop for a new wallet because I'm literally out of slots....
