I wanted to make a comment regarding loyalty to your first card. I'm 49 now. I got my first Visa credit card around the age of 27 with Citibank. I think I signed up for the free items program (they were newly popular at the time). They were my credit card for about the next 20 years. But what led me to switch to a local credit union was when Citibank's customer service moved to India, and if I had issues, I had to talk to someone on the phone who had an Indian accent. They also tried to sell me new services every time I called about an issue. I wasn't comfortable with someone in India having access to my private information, which led me to close that account and get a card with my credit union, who's customer service people are in the U.S.
