(Chase) AU's? :P
Nope. Blue Sky and my AU card on my spouse's SPG.
Point is that between the 2 of us we have 8 amex cards (not so many, I know :) ) so we were bound to overlap at some point. Makes it annoying for sorting receipts.
And I still have to add my spouse to my PRG, Blue Sky, and SPG. Then we'll have 11. Can't wait for SBS!

There are 10,000 possible combinations for the last four digits... doesn't seem so bound to overlap!

I have a few ending in 1000. It's annoying when looking at a receipt and trying to figure out which card I used.
