So I am trying to phase out my Wells Fargo. The point system is now useless compared to my other options. And as I said in my last post, I am now not fond of my Barclay card. It seems it offers me no rewards and little benefits. But mainly because of how they treated me. I did get the CLI letter today, and it was just because of to many inquires on TU. Witch I swear was just AMEX this month, Discover early last month and theirs. :/
None the less, I am thinking that after I am done with the 3 month 1000$ promotion my AMEX blue, I want to try to get this Citi Thank You Preferred. I do already have a Forward card. I am moving in a few months to a city that has Citi banks. So I want to eventuality move away from wells fargo to Citi. I am not fond of their fees. I did get a invite for this Thank you Preferred card, not sure if that is something special or not.
So after the 3 months-1000$ promotion ends with this Thank You card I would want to wrap it all up with a AMEX Gold, not sure If I should get the fancy Gold one or not. What is the real-world differences? I understand the fancier gold is only really worth while if you travel a lot.
I am trying to shift to more 'prime' non-student cards, that hold higher benefits. I feel they would weight more later on. My Wells Fargo, Forward and Discover are Student cards.
Let me know...I am like 702 average as of a few days ago. Going by the sites calculator it says In three months I should be up around 40-50 points. I think that is a little on the high side....who knows..
Anyways, let me know.
