that seems silly to me to give you 3 forward cards...why wouldn't they offer you different cards from them or just simplify it to one card with 3 combined credit limits? lol
Cards in my wallet:
-Citi Forward Card for College Students-July 2011
-American Express Platinum Delta Skymiles--July 2013

I asked them to combine them. Or to do a product change. They said no to combining them and a product change requires a hard pull. So now I have two inactive forward cards

That isn't very accomodating on their behalf. That definitely makes me not want to set up any accounts with them.

In my drawer you will find my NAB Credit Card, I was thinking of cancelling it as it no longer offer rewards but I only pay $30 a year for the annual fee

In my drawer as of yesterday are 2 Capital One Platinum MC that I've had since I was in college. After Capital One refused to up my measly $750 CL, I splurged and applied for both the Chase Saphire Preferred and AMEX Blue Cash Preferred, instant approved with nice credit limits to boot. These will look nice in my wallet along with my Zync and Discover More!

do you mean cards that are opened but not being used? or do you mean cards that expired?

I'm surprised with all you young bucks in here no one has said "condom's" yet. They are 'socks' after all.

They're not sock-drawered, they're in the wallet because they're frequently used.

Main Card: Amex Platinum
For gas: Penfed Platinum Cash Rewards
For travel & dining: Chase Sapphire Preferred

Hahahahaa good point but I find doing that leaves a condom ring on the wallet which I hate ;) . Best to keep a secret condom pocket tailored into your suit jacket.
