I have a variety of other credit card accounts. I have a:
Discover Card (member for 12 years, longest open card account)
Chase Slate Visa
Bank of America Platinum Plus Visa
Best Buy CC
2 Barclays Visa cards
Amex Zync, and now Amex Platinum.
I have good payment history with all, and typically rotate usage / carry small balances between all the cards to show activity. I will be making my Amex Platinum my primary card for nearly everything.
I have the obligatory checking / savings accounts, plus IRA's, brokerage accounts, etc.
I'm 31, if that makes much difference.
