For as little as I'm travelling right at this moment (not at all) it seems a bit much. Then again the travel could start at the drop of a hat - where I work they change their minds by the hour if not by the minute. But I'm starting to question the value of having all these fee cards open when I'm not CURRENTLY using them. I do not want to add anything else with a fee that's for sure.

I haven't stayed at a Hilton for a few years, and I don't know their loyalty program or card terms well, so I can't comment on that one.

You can always get a partial refund on the Platinum AF, then open one again when travel resumes. It's not a card you want to pay for and not use. Keep in mind there's no more backdating, though, if you open a new one later!

Whether you keep EDP or not really depends on your everyday spending, more than your travel plans for work. I'm not sure how much you spend at traditional gas and grocery stores.

To get value from CSP, you really do need to currently travel a fair amount. Freedom can quietly store and rebuild UR points without a CSP. I think you have a Freedom?

With both UR and MR cards (and no recent travel), I'd say you're spreading your spending out too thinly to need the Arrival+. I'd downgrade that to the no-AF version - if you're going to use the EDP a lot, at least.

I wouldnt close it then. I would downgrade to Sr. Green and then upgrade again when travel picks up again.

Is it a hard or soft inquiry?

It's a soft and does not hurt your scores - so go ahead as many times as you like :)
(next time it would be better to ask in a new thread)
