Pick 5, only 5!!

You ever wonder which 5 cards you would pick if given a choice? Only from cards you already have!

I would choose:

1. Lowe’s - I own a house, might need it
2. AMEX BCP - gas and groceries
3. Uber Visa - Restaurants and online
4. Delta Platinum - Annual companion
5. Venture - Highest credit line :-)

Re: Pick 5, only 5!!

Not sure i would need all 5 but..

 

1. disco- oldest card and highest personal limit cc $14k

2. WF cashwise- since it is tied as highest personal limit and rewards go to my mortgage principal

3. HD or lowes- yes might need it at anytime

4. pnc core- since it is my banker

5. toyota visa- use it at dealer for service etc

 

edit: I would like 1. spot to be my sears mc since they give me 10% statement credit ALL THE TIME!

but im sure it will end at some point with them going under.

 

any of those 5 would prob change at any day or the week, just depends on what mood im in hahaha

Re: Pick 5, only 5!!

5 huh? 

 

Amex Platinum - I like the lounge access and typically fly Delta. MR points for flights are good as well

Amex EDP - Great MR earning potential, especially since I hit the 30 swipes per month

Amex Delta Platinum - card gets virtually no usage other than redeeming for the free flight each year. This year it save me $600 on a flight to Rapid City, SD.

Discover It - Simply it is my oldest tradeline and I occasionally use the rotating 5% categories

Chase Marriott - I stay at Marriott a decent amount so the annual free night and Marriott points is quite nice. Also feel I would need a Visa for when Amex and Discover is not accepted.

 

 

Amex Delta Platinum 10k | US Bank Cash+ 18.5k | Barclaycard Rewards 20k | Barclaycard Aviator Red 20k | Lowes 35k | Amex Hilton Ascend 36k | Discover It 40.8k | Amex EDP 50k | Bank of America BBR 65k | Chase Marriott 67k | Amex Platinum NPSL

Re: Pick 5, only 5!!

I only have 5 . . easy!

 

PenFed Pathfinder Amex - 4x points travel

Discover - 5% rotating categories

PenFed Cash Rewards - 2% cash back on anything that isn't travel or a rotating Discover category

Navy Cash Rewards - supplemental cell phone insurance + 1.5% cash back on anything (sometimes use depending on when statements are cycling if I want maximum grace to pay for something) Also my lowest interest rate should I ever need to carry a balance and don't have a 0% offer.

Target - 5% 

Ch 7 Discharge May 2015
Discover/Target/NFCU CLOC/NFCU Cash Rewards/PenFed Power Cash Rewards/PenFed Pathfinder AMEX - $60k total revolving
