What's in My Wallet? September 2017 Edition

What's in my wallet is a monthly series that explains the reasoning behind each card in my wallet. The cards change depending on if I need to hit minimum spend on a new card or if I want to maximize cash back categories for the quarter.

Chase Freedom

The 5% cash back category during Q3 for the Chase Freedom is restaurants. I just finished maxing out my category spend with the Discover It card, so the Chase Freedom is going to be my default card whenever I dine out. Learn more about the Chase Freedom Q3 categories in the video below:

American Express Platinum

I recently canceled my Amex Business Platinum card and replaced it with a personal Amex Platinum card. This month, I'm working on hitting $5,000 minimum spend requirement to earn the 60,000 point bonus.

Marriott Business 

I missed out on getting the personal version of the Chase Marriott card because I was over the Chase 5/24 rule. As a result, I applied for the business version to earn the 80,000 point signup bonus and free anniversary night. The Marriott card is a keeper in my books. 

The Marriott business card is the only business card that's not affected by the Chase 5/24. 

Cathay Pacific

The Cathay Pacific card is another new addition to my wallet. I signed up for the card because I want to experience a first-class international flight with Cathay Pacific. With the increased signup offer, this makes the goal more attainable.
