The couple of extra bucks from carrying numerous credit cards is not worth keeping them in my wallet. In terms of payment cards, I have 1 debit and 2 credit. Occasionally I would add another card, but no more.
Codoms and wet naps.
Too Far ?
1 debit and 1 credit, rest stays at home
2 major credit cards (Visa for emergencies, Discover for everyday purchases cuz of the cashback), 1 store (Walmart) and my Debit Card.
Chase Freedom, AMEX BCE, US Bank Cash+, FT Knox Visa Platinum (5% on gas), and 20+5$ change so i can give tips and use them for vending machines...
This way i am covered all around no matter what or where I shop....
AMEX DELTA GOLD
Chase Freedom Sig
BoA Cash Rewards 123 WMC
I love how AmEx has their own special pocket lol
Right Now It's
US Bank Cash + (Restaurants, Bill Pay)
AMEX BCP (Groceries)
AMEX PRG (Gas)
Barclays NFL Visa (meeting spend requirement)
Discover, Freedom, and Dividend are SD'd as their bonus categories are not real appealing this quarter
Why would you use the PRG for gas and only get 2 points per dollar spent when you could get 3% cash back with the BCP?
chase freedom (anything $10 or under; maxed out cap on Q4 things. sadly enough, had to put a hotel on the amex for the 2% instead because of the $1500 cap)
discover it (replacing citi forward in Q1 2013)
fidelity amex (2%)
penfed platinum rewards (gas/groceries)
citi forward (restaurants)
driver's license obviously
covers pretty much everything i need on a daily basis.
