Every month I rotate in new cards in my wallet. For the month of April I have been working on hitting a few welcome bonuses for my cards. Lets take a deeper dive in what I have my wallet.

American Express Marriott Bonvoy Business Card

(Expired Offer Disclaimer.)

This is the latest addition to my wallet and I have been using it more frequently to hit my welcome bonus of $5,000 for this card.

I was able to get the Marriott Bonvoy business card at a promotion. This is what was included:

  1. First year AF waived

  2. Second year AF is reduced $30

  3. 100,000 Marriott Points offer (This offer was valid for a limited time)

In addition to that, since this is a business card it does not affect my 5/24 rule and also does give me a small bit of status benefits with Marriott.

American Express Gold Card

The American Express Gold card has been my daily driver since I first got this card in October of 2018.

I use this card primarily for dining and U.S supermarkets because of the whopping 4x return I get back from it.

Chase Business Ink Cash

When a merchant does not want to accept my American Express cards I make sure I have a Visa card as backup. My Chase Business Ink Cash Card is my go to card as that back up.

This card comes with incredible benefits including purchase protection, and flexible cash back.

"For this card I earn 5% cash back when I use this card at office supply stores. 2% Cash back at restaurants and gas stations and 1% back on all other purchases." - must include spend caps for 5% & 2% categories

The Ink Cash Card has been my card I use for gas and any big business purchases I have.

Chase Business Ink Preferred

I keep the business ink preferred because of the 3x points on the first $150,000 I spend when I purchase travel, shipping, advertising categories on this card. Most of these redemptions come from business expenses, however I keep this card on me for when I am on the go and working remotely where I need to plug in my card information. It doesn’t get much use as a daily driver but it does fill up a spot as back up in my wallet.
