I've opted out of prescreen offers with the credit reporting agencies, so I don't get offers. However, CapitalOne, with whom I have one cc account that I've never used repeatedly sends me BT checks and loan offers after they been told repeatedly over the last 12 months to stop.
American Express: Blue Cash Preferred (groceries, 6%; gas, department store, 3%); Gold Delta SkyMiles (Delta Air Lines, 2 miles/dollar, free checked bag).
US Bank: Cash+ (utilities, phone, internet, restaurant, 5%; drugstores, 2%).
FIA Card Services: Fidelity Amex (everything, 2%); Fidelity Visa (everything, 1.5%).
Chase: Freedom (rotating, 5%); Amazon (Amazon.com, 3%); PriorityClub (IHG hotels, 5 points/dollar); Sapphire (not in use).

*All cards are registered with PriorityClub IDine program for 8 points/dollar at participating restaurants.

Discover, by far.

I started collecting the letters for fun- I'm sure I have well over 15 in my closet within the last three months, no joke. Most of them are the same exact letters too.

I don't hate them, but being that I have Chase's Freedom and an Amex, what's the point of getting the Discover More card? I find it comical.

Damn telemarketers who want to sell me cheap useless crap. If there is one service I can buy (that works) is to block out ALL these bothersome calls.

I had one the other day asking if I would be interested in a 75% off stay in a Mexican resort.

I said no and she was surprised to say the least, asking why.

My response before I hung up.... "You didnt mention it was it the Ritz Carlton and sadly I don't stay in bed bug infested locations or rent by the hour $ex joints" CLICK

Even though I opted out of prescreened offers, a few sometimes still sneak by and mostly from the companies I already have cards with!

- Chase (BTs out the wazoo)
- Citibank (more BTs out the wazoo and sometimes, their other cards)
- AMEX (mostly business-related information and business-related card promos, but their website (and sometimes CSRs) is always offering me pre-qualified card offers)
- Discover (I don't own a Discover card, but I still sometimes get the occasional promo)
Personal Collection:

AMEX: Everyday (MR), Macy's (cobranded)
MASTER: Citibank Dividend Platinum Select (non-World version)
VISA: Chase Amazon Signature, Chase (bank issued)
GE: Care Credit (medical expenses), Macy's (store), JCP (store)

Business Collection:

AMEX: Costco True Earnings
VISA: Chase Ink Cash
