I just ended my gold card for Mastercard and Visa. We took it out last year because the lower interest rate justified the annual fee. Well, I have no balance anymore, so why pay an annual fee? Now it's just plain old Mastercard, sitting forlorn in my top drawer.

Oh, in my earlier post I mentioned that I accidentally forgot my AMEX when I traveled on business last week...I also discovered I accidentally took an "advance" with my debit card. The problems you get into when you are in a hurry.

Anyway, I do have a reserve in my bank savings account, so all was well until I got home. Next time it's, "American Express, don't leave home without it."
