Be impressed. This is totally from memory and in order in which I received each card. And wouldn't you know I forgot two of the most controversial.
But I do this to try and help those who are considering one card over another. Obviously some cards are no longer offered. Red cards are bad cards.
Now, for those considering any of the above cards that are still being offered there is one thing you should be aware of besides what I've stated: your credit report.
The statute of limitations on revolving accounts is 7 years from the date the account is closed. That means that of what I have listed there, all but 8 of those cards should still be reporting on my credit report, yet the number is significantly lower. So for a total # of cards where I have averaged 1 credit card per year I have been on this earth approximately, quite a few of the closed ones just deleted themselves from the report prior to the 7th year. That obviously impacted my credit score, especially since some cards were closed without my approval. So when hunting for cards, pick ones that you know or believe will be around for some time, and will do you right.
Oh wow! You remember all that about your cards. I am impressed. I rarely remember the credit lines on each of my cards. Congrats!!
Very informative post. I remember some of those cards.
