Good to hear. Any other ideas to make it shorter? I'm thinking of taking out the words charge card and credit card out.

Done. I made Charge cards green ($$$$ available since no spend limit, just have to pay off every month), regular cards are standard blue.

That's funny. I was thinking of changing the color. Thought it would be annoying to add the code though. I guess its not so bad. Thanks for the input, there's the SPG card remaining which I can't edit ATM. Also, put the key on the bottom with a note on top to scroll down for the key.

Awesome Wiki, really helpful. I have an excel spreadsheet with just my CC's, but this really helps to see what good CC's are. +1

Club Carlson are reported to be very hard to get approved if you are a churner.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

It seems all US Bank cards are just harder to get.
