So I just applied for and got instant approval for the CSP. My hope this will be the one card to rule them all.
That card was my AMEX PRG but since the United / Continental merger I have eventually not been able to transfer points from AMEX to my One Pass (now stupid United Plus) account. So a while back I got a United Card and a S.W.A. Card (this one for the bonus) since those two airlines dominate out of Houston. However, I am happier to have one card to transfer points from i.e. the CSP. Also, will try to move lines from closed cards to CSP.
The plan now is to close the AMEX PRG, the United and SWA due to fees.
Keep the Marriott as we stay there a lot and always use the free night and keep the NF Hilton because if we don't stay at Marriott it will it will probably be at Hilton.
Close the Capitol One after I spend bonus miles. Keep Barclays Arrival. Both of these are no fee version and Barclay is only MC I have. I don't totally know why that makes a difference but it is what it is.
I want to keep the AMEX BCE to maintain the 20 year relationship and will probably keep the others open just for sake of the AAoA and and Utilization plus that they have no annual fees. Also keeping the Freedom to pair with the CSP.
I should state here, the main goal is to travel via United and SWA and stay in Marriott as it is our favorite chain.
Thoughts? Is this logical? Feedback appreciated.
