I like and want the Marriott Premier because I stay at Marriott's mostly when I travel so it would be good for me to use and get points for. I got the PRG mainly because I wanted to be in with Amex and didn't want to app for another card, fearing the rejection, Thankfully it is an SP only if your already an Amex member. The BCE is the one I want because It can be my other everyday card+alternative gas card.
I think you should keep the BOFA card. But close it if you have no use for it. I'm honestly not sure if it reports canceled, probably as closed on your reports.
If I were you, carry up to six cards and if you need more close one you don't have any use for. I am personally going to be closing some cards next year if I don't have at least a 2k limit or higher (when I do my CLI's I want 2k+ on my cards or else it gets SD'ed or closed).
I hear they are going to do some changes on the Citi TYP, and not good changes. But it is a good card I think but if you do try for it, good luck. I think the CSP is better if you travel and dine out a lot. I dine out quite a bit so it would be good as it is essentially a 2% card. But I think you could get for it if you app, I won't be apping for it right now since I want my income to be higher before I app for it.
