Any recommendations on what card to get next?

Postby honolulu » Sun May 04, 2014 11:02 am

New to cards here, I started a job July 2013 and I got the Chase Freedom and CSP cards soon thereafter. Now that I have a bit more time and money to go around, I am searching for a new card.

Some information that may be relevant:

- $5000 and $6000 limits on the two cards
- 750 credit score according to Credit Karma
- Always pay down full balance
- Spend most of my money on restaurants and monthly bills (phone, internet, etc).

I was thinking that the US Bank Cash + might be a good option, but it seems like they only have in-branch applications? I need another restaurant card too once the April - June categorical spending for Freedom ends..


Thank you very much! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Just and FYI if you didn't know, the CSP gives double rewards on restaurants and triple rewards on restaurants the first Friday of the month.

Amex Blue Cash. Get it, use 61 days, then request a CLI from the website and ask for a total of 3x your current CL. One of the best gas/grocery cards.

The Cash+ is the best restaurant card. Try to get it over the phone.
    Chase Sapphire Preferred Visa Signature: 11/2013, $15,000 CL
    Chase Freedom Visa: 11/2009, $4,700 CL
    U.S. Bank Cash+ Visa Signature: 11/2013, $11,200 CL

Cash + is probably your best bet. Another option for the utilities might be the fidelity AMEX for a flat 2% back on all of it. Also, you might want to consider a BOA better balance rewards. Let 1 utility go to that(internet would definitely do), pay it off after the statements and get $100 easy money every year ($120 if you deposit to a BOA checking or savings account)
