I have been using the AMEX reward gold card to run all my expenses through. I have been saving my points for airfare. I applied and was accepted for the united explorer card from the 50k promotion posted earlier. I need to decide on which card to keep to accrue points. I am leaning towards the United card, any thoughts?
I think Chase Sapphire preferred is better if u wants to keep a card. it can transfer rewards points to several airlines.

I have all of these cards and second the sapphire vote - can transfer to United, Southwest or BA, or cash out 1:1
AMEX cannot do United, Delta or Southwest, and United Card can only do United...
Churn all for the sign up points (if you can) but keep the sapphire

I am sure the AMEX Reward has better rewards, United is only 50k after 1k spend. I would go with AMEX Reward.

The gold card is shinier.

OP, suggest you go over to flyertalk and start reading.
Whole thing with cards is to get big bonuses and then get another card with another big bonus and repeat. If you don't understand that it is hard to get anywhere.
Suggest you immediately look into getting U.S. Air card, good bonus which will be AA miles soon. Also get Citibank AA card(s). Check Flyertalk threads for best deals on these cards or just look at some blogs such as http://millionmilesecrets.com/.
