    Far too many. One of the down sides to being a money saver is having lots of cards to carry. Firstly, the usual:

    Driving licence
    Debit card (for cash withdrawals)
    Credit card (for 0% purchases)
    Credit card (for fee-free foreign transactions)


    Then reloadable cards that provide discounts for certain stores:

    Tesco
    B&Q
    Wickes
    Sainsburys
    EasySaver


    Then reward cards for certain stores:

    Tesco clubcard
    Shell drivers club
    Nectar
    B&Q club
    Pets at Home VIP
    Barbershop stamp card


    Finally, miscellaneous:

    Organ donor card
    RAC
    Private healthcare membership
    Gym membership

    This is not investment advice.

    I don't carry rewards cards, as most of them are stored on the Google Pay app, so I only have:

    Barclays Premier debit (main account)
    Barclaycard Platinum credit (back-up card)
    Driving licence
    Gym/library card
    Oyster card
    No cash

    When travelling abroad:
    + Halifax Clarity credit (no-fee cash purchases)
    + Nationwide FlexPlus debit (no-fee cash withdrawals)
