1 AMEX Gold charge card and 1 NFCU CC. I don't carry a debit card but I have a small amount of cash on hand should a situation come up.

CSR and some default spender, usually the FU, but occasionally the Quicksilver.

 

Just don't need any more for my normal routine, gas card kicked to the curb too now Smiley Happy.

5 cards total, and the setup changes from time to time. Right now my wallet is rocking...

 

- Amex Platinum for general spend

- Amex Gold for supermarkets (2nd biggest spend category)

- Chase Sapphire Reserve for eating out (biggest spend category)

- Chase Freedom Unlimited for joint purchases with the wife

- Chase debit for cash withdrawals.

 

I'll be switching it up in January for when I'll be in Europe. I'll probably take the Plat for lounge access, CSR for general spend, and maybe the AAdvantage just to have a MasterCard in the mix.

Only three.  AMEX Gold and CSP are my front-seaters.  The third is a platoon between NFCU Go Rewards or Alaska Airlines Visa Sig.    I carry my BECU Mastercard debit for when I need more cash.

Nice stack.  I went to a fossil iPhone wallet because I got tired of always checking my pockets for my phone and a wallet, thinking I might lose one or the other, or leave one at home.  

 

Now it’s phone and car fob, but  I’m thinking of ditching the car fob and use a phone app.

ALL of them.. 0000creditcard.gif

Spread out in 2 wallets in my handbag. You just never know what you're gonna need.

I don't live in a place where there are pick-pockets and due to the value of my handbag itself and the other ahem,,,, hardware I carry in my bag- I have about zero chance of being robbed. twothumbsupgif.png

Re: How many credit cards do you guys carry with you daily?

I finally got me a new wallet which can carry up to 20 cards.  About the size of a pack of cigs in my front pocket.  I carry 11CCs, 2 bank cards and my drivers license.
