    I made my own rudimentary sheet but was wondering what your guys' favorite .xls files are. I know most of the bloggers have their own available and was hoping you could provide your insight on the best for tracking opening dates, closings, spend reqs, fee dates, rewards, and bonus features. Or if you have your own that you want to share feel free!!

    Card watchdog,

    Put a sticker on the card, put the date it,

    Your appointment book,

    Email yourself, in a future date..

    Just to name a few...and you don't need a spreadsheet,

    I have the important dates in my phone and work calendars. I just like working with excel and moving numbers around quickly, thanks for the reply though.

    Yeah, my favorite method at the moment is to simply put the pay date for each card on my calendar as a recurring all-day event. Using Google Calendar I can make these a particular color so they're easily distinguishable from the other stuff.

    Now my credit card applications, state of required spend, reward expected, whether I've hit the spend, whether I've received the award, the annual fee, notes, etc etc are all in a spreadsheet.

    I have it in an Excel spreadsheet which I store on Dropbox encrypted using BoxCryptor (because if you don't already know, you shouldn't store critical information on DropBox without encrypting it first since they have the keys).
