When I was "collecting" cards 1-2 years ago I wound up with 3-4 Visas for every MC.
As for service, prestige, etc., I don't think it matters. MC has a nice payment tag if your bank offers it. However, you can only use it at McDonald's, CVS and probably a couple other glamorous places, it seems.
The bank behind the card is much more important.
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.
