What’s in Greg’s wallet?

Yesterday, in response to reader inquiries, Nick revealed the credit and debit cards he carries in his wallet.  Now it’s my turn.  But please note that these are not recommendations for what you should do.  Everyone’s circumstances differ.  What’s best for me likely is not best for you.  Further, I’m not arguing that what I have is necessarily best for me either (although I think it’s pretty good).  It’s just a list of cards that…

This post is about Bank of America’s own rewards cards: Cash Rewards, Travel Rewards, and Premium Rewards. None of Bank of America’s own cards would be interesting except for one key…
