Thanks! No doubt that will make me the belle of the checkout ball but I’m going to give one transaction, one card a whirl!

@sammydavidjr I work second shift with Monday & Tuesday off. I do not encounter many crowds at all and majority of the world has no clue I exist. So luckily I am not in a position that makes me that guy! Smiley LOL

You could also live in a high ratio retirement city like myself. Self checkout is always empty and fastest. 😂

@GApeachy I just figured you were working the self checkout lane from time to time too.

The really odd thing about all this was getting the upgrade offer on my JetBlue card to JetBlue Plus at the same time. I’m going to give that a whirl.

No, since covid-19, when I do go I get in and out (mask and all) as quick as I can.  The only places that have self check out that I've seen always have like 500 ppl waiting in line, you know cuz there are 40 registers and only 2 open lanes ..........not down for a can of soup upside the head.  BUT...this could work for online orders as long as I don't jeopardize my free shipping.

Sound advise @M_Smart007 and @blindambition . I'll put infrequent spend on it. TBH, I kind of forget its there sometimes. I remember wanting it back when I had only 2 cards simply because it was a lower APR and a little bit more of a challenge to be approved for. They have been good to me so I don't want to lose it. However, they send an obnoxious and frankly dangerous amount of blank checks in the mail. Smiley Frustrated


Put a reminder in your phone every 3 months to use the card lol. I use phone reminders for expiring deals that I want to use but don't need to do immediately.

😆 So if you put about 30 items in your cart, you can cover practically each card.
