Re: Do I have too many credit cards?

I'm not sure if you have too many cards but some of them are superfluous. Chase Amazon is pointless since you have the Citi Forward which gives you 5% on Amazon & restaurants (vs.Chase Amazon card's 3% on Amazon & 2% on restaurants; your Penfed gives you 5% on gas which beats Chase Amazon's 2% on gas.)

Regarding Bloomy's card- very difficult to buy much with a paltry $1500 limit plus since you have Amex BCE you get 2% back at Bloomy's which beats the 1.5% Bloomy's offers on their card ( 3 loyallist pts = 1.5% bc you need 5,000 pts for a $25 gift card.)

 

Citi Thank You $13,200 - Chase Freedom $3,100 - AMEX Zync NPSL (init. ability $17.5K) - Citi Forward $7,000 - AMEX BCP $6,000 - USAA Rate Adv $15,000 - USAA World MC $12,000 - Discover More $4,000 - Amex Hilton Honors $4,500 - Amex SPG $2,000 - Barclay's Priceline Rewards $6,400 - Chase Sapphire Pref. $7,500
