I already had a propel card, is this a different version? Or just a new design?

This card does not earn MR points that everyone is taking about. It would not be eligible for the 20% off azazom deal recently. The points are redeemable direct to WF checking. 30k points should be $300. This is different from the propel world card ( I got this with 40k sign up 2 months ago). These cards do come with cell ins but read the fine print and VZW offers $5 discount for bank ACH.

I don't travel for work and when we travel for pleasure, I just use my brother's points or miles because he's got a billion and a half.

Your list of cards already made it 4x more complicated than I care for it to be. I never use my Freedom card because, well, I don't pay attention to rotating categories. I don't even know - or care - about what those other ones are.


Probably.


Oh, come on, don't be ridiculous. You know exactly what I mean. I don't have an econobox, sports car, truck, mini van, and airplane to maximize my transportation options, either. My Outback does everything I need it to do and it does it pretty well. That's what I'm looking for: the Subaru Outback of credit cards.

Some of us simply don't care enough to evaluate each transaction we make. We want to carry a slim wallet and enjoy the simplicity that comes with using only a card or two on a regular basis. If that's a concept that's beyond you, I will have to apologize because your advice is wasted on me, though I appreciate that you took the time to share it.
The 2% cards are your jack of all trades KISS cards. I like the chase Amazon visa for...well 5% back at Amazon.
I use the penfed visa for 5% gas.
I would have the amex blue for 3 or 6% at grocery but Walmart doesn't count and is my grocery store.
I would make sure to have one amex card...they have zero AF cards so you can do amex offers.
Perhaps a travel card like this or amex gold/plat or CPR or CPP for things like rental primary insurance or travel insurance. I tend to sign up for 1.or 2 a year just for bonuses but don't play it hard.

Source? I assume you're referring to Amex offers not presales nor Taste Invites. Thanks.

Since all those things cost thousands to tens of thousands of dollars and require large amounts of storage and infrastructure and fuel, it's a pretty terrible analogy to... literally a few ounces of plastic that fits in your wallet.


What you said was 'I was the maximize my rewards'

what you apparently meant was "I want something that requires 0 effort"

Those are very much not the same thing.

You're getting, at best, 1/3rd to 1/2 the amount of rewards your way

(and much less than that if you were someone who used rewards for travel where you can get cash-back equivalent rewards in the 6-10% pretty routinely, and in the 7.5-25% range in many cases)

That's not quite the opposite of maximizing, but it's pretty far from maximizing.


If that's worth avoiding the "hassle" of carrying more than 1 credit card is entirely your call, but you should at least know what you're giving up to do it.

As I said- if you find getting 2x or more rewards not worth carrying 3 or 4 cards instead of 1, then that's your call.

In which case, just get the Alliant card (assuming you spend more than 12k a year on a credit card) or a Citi Doublecash if you spend less than 12k total in a year.

There MAY be a better "only 1 card" for you than that- but it would require you to analyze what categories your spending tends to be in- For example if someone found they spent WAY more on gas than general purchases (I dunno, you're a trucker maybe?) then possibly a card with high cash back on gas but low cash back otherwise, is the "best" one-card-only.... but that seems like more work than you're interested in.

Do they consider that a different product? At least for the sign on bonus?

Does anyone, who has this card, know what's the approximate credit limit you would get with this card assuming you have a good credit score around 775.

I am super new to all these CC reward cards. I would like to be super simple and only want to pay with one card. We take vacation every year, domestically and internationally. We currently have the Amex Preferred, which we're not happy that we have to pay $95 annual fees on. Looking for zero annual fee card at this point.

I know it's hard to choose but which card is the best fit for my case? Should I settle with this card and cancel my Amex? Thanks all

Has cell phone protection. If you pay your recurring cell phone bill with the card you are protected up to $600 from damage or theft. Have never seen that benefit on any card before. Pretty good for $0 annual fee.
Wells Fargo card cashback card, and signature cards have that cell phone protection as well. Take note It's only good if you are on a recurring monthly plan, no prepaid. There is a $25 processing fee for a claim ( gets deducted from whatever you get back). You better have the receipt of your original phones purchase or it may be denied. Also if you have more than one phone on the account and say your wife destroys her phone only the main account holder can make the claim and go through the redemption steps, your wife can't call in and do it herself. I know this from experience.

"That escalated quickly!" Really though lol, this is just a SD forum. Anyhow, I'm chiming in to say that I think the targeted/limited USAA Limitless VISA could possibly be considered the "only 1 card", 2.5% CB on all purchases. But one needs to have DD to a USAA checking account to qualify. And USAA period for that matter! Not easy things to get if you're not already in the system.

If you have recently applied for the Wells Fargo Cash Wise card then youre eligible for the bonus on this card Frown

"It looks like you've recently taken advantage of an introductory credit card offer.
You opened a Wells Fargo credit card within the last 15 months and already received introductory terms. You are not eligible to receive the introductory APR, fees, and bonus rewards offer again. This restriction applies even if your prior account is closed or has a zero balance."
