I'm getting killed in gas. I live in lower state New York, but I purchase gas in New Jersey. On my Exxon mobile gas card I'm paying 53.00 dollars a week. about 2 1/2 months ago I was paying 38.00 a week. I cut 2 trips down from the Malls and 1 snack place away. these places are about 20 minutes away I now only go about once a month.
So I'm thinking about 3 credit cards don't know which 1 I should get.
no.1. the Exxon Mobile credit card which I believe is a Master card. I've had the charge
card since 1994 it says it on the card that member ship. I always pay my bill in full.
I have copys of my credit report and since I don't pay any interest they don't put it on.
no.2 I'm thinking of a Discover card either the red white and blue or the Motiva.
having 2 credit cards with 5% rotation categories could be useful, I can always redeem for a gift card I also have the Black.
no.3 just wondering what do you guys think about the American express clear card it doesn't seem like there's a lot of people who have this card it might be a very nice card to have.
My back ground I don't travel on business.
My credit report. I opened my first credit card and it was a First Fidelity Visa , Back in those days that card had an annual fee of 15.00 in 1989. I got better offers in the mail. After I got my First card that was the name of a bank It came from the boon docks . I canceled my First fidelity
somewhere around 93 or 94. I then got a Mba Visa I owed my friend and accountant baseball ticket I t used the card a few times then I canceled it.
After first card closed there doors, Bank 1 took over around 2001, then around 2006 Chase merged with them , last October Chase on the Freedom card took my member since of 1995 off the Freedom, I canceled that card, I was in the Chase family from 1995-2010
So I have 3 canceled credit cards, store cards Kohls , Lord & Taylor and Disney
all have deactivated
My credit report is probably ok maybe not great but mostly better than everybody elses.
Cards I have are the Exxon mobile gas, sice 1994, Discover 1998, Capitol 1 gold about 10 months and American Express since 2010.
So which credit card should I get another Discover, the Exxon Mobil mastercard or American Express clear?
