Chase Sapphire Reserve + Freedom Unlimited Venture X + One For single, I’d do the Freedom Unlimited, for sure

likefunny

I'm also tired of juggling, but between the CSR + Freedom Unlimited, I find it very easy to keep them straight. All things dining and travel goes on CSR; everything else on Freedom. And Freedom is a free card, so you can't go wrong. When you're ready to spend the points, transfer them to the CSR (instant). The only thing I'm missing with the above two is a grocery card (and gas, but I only get gas once a month so it's not worth a card). Edit: single card isn't strategic. That's why people here can't give you one "best" card.

Go after SUBs, put your spending on the card you're trying to hit the SUB on

CSR is best all around. Grab a Freedom unlimited if you can do pair as well and you’re all set

Hence why my first sentence says get CSR

People really can’t solve a problem with restrictions huh… If travel will be a majority of your spend, then CSR or Venture X. I’d personally go Venture X if you’re tied to the single card strat long term

Venture X if a single card

Since you already have the credit cards open, you should keep them open to maintain stronger credit history. (Just because they're open doesn't mean you have to use them.) We have 1 credit card that we actively use (Southwest card) and then the other 2 aren't used other than once or twice a year for something small like a tank of gas or something to show activity on it.
