Personal Quote

"It’s totally OK to have more than one credit card. In fact, if you want your money to work as hard as possible, you should have multiple cards that reap different rewards for different areas of spending in your life. Just be careful of signing up for too many cards in a short time — you might see adverse effects on your credit report."
