I don't really rotate. The drawer cards are occasionally used to keep them active:
USAA American Express
USAA World Mastercard

The MileagePlus Explorer probably needs to go in the drawer...

I carry CSP, Us Airways World MC, and my AMEX Green that's been upgraded to PRG but card hasn't come in yet. AMEX is first out of the gate.

I should update I carry those in my Iphone case (Twelve South Book Book) along with my DL.

I have a wallet that is in my backpack with BCP, Discover, and Chase Freedom. Sock Drawer Cap one, Orchard MC, and Legacy Visa.

Freedom, Blue Cash, and a gas card are in my wallet at all times. The Discover stays in the drawer unless I'm making that rare trip to Sam's or during a 5% CB category that I use. Citi Plat Select (I don't think they even offer this card anymore) stays in the drawer permanently.

Correction - Freedom, Discover It, and Chevron gas card is in my wallet. BCE and Citi Platinum Select have been stored away.

I put away BCE because I'm no longer a Costco member. I buy groceries from WinCo, which doesn't take credit cards, and local farmers market, which are mainly cash only. I buy gas with my Chevron card to take advantage of their discount.
