Hey Daraius,

Why do I always feel guilty when I get a new card? I feel like I’m doing something wrong by getting something for nothing.

This morning I got two more cards, the Fairmont hotels chase card (my 6th active chase card) for 2 free hotel rooms and the Citi AA card for 50,000 miles. I will use both cards and I am very happy about the incentives — but I still feel like I’m getting away with something.

I’m tempted to apply for a third card today but it feels like I’m pushing my luck. Thanks for sharing all the great offers.
