Any ideas on what to apply for now that my TU is.....better than good?

I'm considering Hawaiian WEMC from Barclaycard but don't wanna get on their bad side by applying for a 4th card. I have the three that I want from them as it is. SM, Aviator, Ring.

From Marriott's website, go to:
1. "Earn points" under Marriott Rewards
2. "Get points for everyday spending" under Earn with our Rewards partners
3. "Shop my way"
4. "Sports and Recreation" within All Categories
5. TSG is listed in the fifth row.

There are a few other portals for TSG. Portals tend to make a lot of store cobrand cards unattractive from a rewards standpoint.

I know Discover Deals is one I'll be using quite often. Especially if double cash back applies.
Current Cards: Chase Freedom, Discover IT
Future: TBD

If you know all the features of your existing cards, it helps to avoid the junk!
