structurek said:   What would be a good everyday card that would also be good for gas? (Already have chase freedom) I was thinking of applying for the sallie mae world card.. I think my local wall-mart is coded as a groceries store since it is a Super WalMart. I do almost all of my shopping there or online at Amazon.

Would that be sufficient or should I go with the 2% on all purchases from Fidelity? I don't think I could spend enough to really take advantage of the AMEX bluecash preferred, but the bluecash everyday would be reasonable.

What advantage does the capital one 1.5% have over the Fidelity?

I know there are also some cards that will give you an extra $25 gift card of your choice every time you redeem $100 worth of points/credit/cash. What cards do that and which would you recommend?

Thanks!


Sallie Mae is a good card. Low caps on gas/grocery reward spend though.

Advantage of capital one is that you do not need a fidelity account, if you're inclined not to have one.

US Bank Cash Plus Visa Signature does a $25 bonus on redeeming $100 (once per year). Also has 5% & 2% categories you can choose.

I'd also throw in the PenFed Cash Rewards; 5% credit each month for gas.

Penfed wouldn't give me a card, they told me my credit score is 774 but I had 6 new cards opened in Jan, while my AOA is like 6 years. Denied because of Pyramiding... Crazy... They told me they want to see 1-2 years of account history on my new cards... Its gonna suck because I opened 4 new cards on the day I app'd penfed... LoL, I guess I will get the Sallie Mae or something for gas...

Mini-AOR complete. I've been slogging along with a 1% back $300 max/year Citi dividend card. Upgraded last night to Amex Blue Cash Preferred for 6% groceries and 3% gas, Fido Investment Rewards Amex for 2% on everything else, and a Cap One Quicksilver for 1.5% back on all non-Amex purchases. Thanks to FWF for the great info. Hoping to clear $1200 over the next 12 months in bonuses and Cash Back.

if I was eligible for the defender, I'd take that every time. Auto statement credit > messing with redemptions.


But I don't charge enough for an extra 0.5% to make much of a difference.


I have the Fidelity Amex and I have it auto cash out my points monthly. It's super easy.


As I mentioned, I don't charge enough. It takes me 6 months to a year to cash out my Fidelity Amex. It's "super easy", but you still have to transfer it from Fidelity to your bank account, unless you keep it at Fidelity. Statement credit would get rid of that step, not to mention lower your bill slightly.

Wow. Stumbled on this thread from another board. Any recommendations for a simple scenario?

I don't really want a different card for everything, and would prefer Cash Back to travel or other deals.

I currently have one card I use (and one I never use) that has no rewards of any kind. 3-5k per month spent on it. Credit score was 820 last time it was run (couple months ago)

I can appreciate the results that people are getting, but I'm not looking to put that much effort into it.

Off the bat, the Fidelity AMEX has no annual fee and gets you 2% Cash Back on every purchase. Foreign transaction fee is also only 1% (versus the typical 2.75-3% charged by most other Visa/AMEX cards).

If you can give a rough breakdown of that $3-5k/month spend (restaurant, groceries, gas, etc), you would get better recommendations.

FTF?

Going by this months statement (a little more than normal...around 7k), I'm spending 250ish on gas, 850 eating out, 200 grocery, 500 utilities, and the rest entertainment and shopping. I also forgot to mention that I never carry a balance, if that matters.

Thanks!

Agree on the Fidelity Amex, zero thought has to go into that card once you have the Fidelity account set up, they just drop a $50.00 check in your Fidelity account each time you spend $2,500 dollars and by far the best customer service experience I've had with any card. I would think about the US Bank card too, a bit more thought, but if you spend that much on eating out each month, just choose restaurants and fast food for your two 5% categories, and set a reminder for each quarter to sign up, and just use the card for the first two months for eating out, then switch back to the Amex for the final month since the 5% caps out at $1,500 in spending per quarter

Depending on how much they eat out (they said that this month's statement was higher than usual and that $850 went towards eating out), they may or may not hit that $2k cap. Even if they did, it likely would not be by much. That said, I do have and like the US Bank Cash+ card, but only for the 5% categories.

@VetteVert: since you want to minimize the number of cards, your decision about what card(s) to get will depend on what CashBack you're willing to give up for that convenience. What stuff and stores fall into your entertainment and shopping categories? Electronics from Newegg? Toys from Amazon? Books from the bookstore? Lingerie from VS? If you are firm on only having a single card, I'd again recommend the FIA Amex with its flat 2% CB. If you're willing to put a little thought into which card to use (i.e. have 2-4), you could potentially have a significant increase in CashBack. Or, if you were willing to apply for multiple cards with signup bonuses, you could easily leverage your usual spend to get those. The "Cash Back" from doing some signup bonuses is 10% (i.e. Chase 50k UR point offers for $5k spend in 3months; in terms of CashBack, 1 UR point = 1 cent). Other signup bonuses could be redeemed for gift cards at places you shop.

I don't, really, and paying to fly to a distant part of the country just so I can get a credit card that will save me 5% Cash Back on a fairly moderate amount of spending seems a little counterproductive.

I've opened accounts (hello, Chase!) when I've been in other states either for vacation or for conferences. If you're going to be somewhere else anyway, you might as well leverage it. Otherwise, find the best thing available to you and get it.

Quick note about my Fidelity Amex. I called today to tell them that I was going to make a big purchase and my last payment wasn't showing yet and I needed that available. The lady said she could make it available, but thought it would be better to try and raise my limit. I just got the card in April with a small AOR. That AOR hit my "okay credit" pretty hard so I wanted to wait on trying for limit increases.

The lady was really nice and I told her I didn't want any hard inquiries on my credit. She said basically they would ask some questions and do a soft pull. My limit was $7500, she asked what I wanted to go for, I said $12,500. She then asked about my income, my mortgage payment, and my wife's income. She noted that my payment history was perfect. After that she told me she didn't even have to run my credit, she would increase the limit to $12,500. I just went online and it's been raised!

I have been using the heck out of this card for my business (10k+ per month) and maybe that is what made the difference.

It was so weird, some banks are super picky about raising limits. I wasn't even wanting to raise the limit and she basically made me. Crazy morning.

This month was higher than normal due to a $3k TV purchase.  I replaced one that died, and that is not a typical purchase.  $850 eating out will fluctuate from $500 - $1000 depending on where I'm at and time of year.  I looked at the US Bank cash+ card, and think I could manage using 1 card for eating out and 1 for everything else.  I would forget to shower every other week if it wasn't on my calendar, so choosing the categories each quarter wouldn't be a big deal.  Does that seem like a reasonable setup with simplicity in mind?

If that happened to me, I would keep an eye on my credit reports. As far as I can tell, Fidelity always does a hard pull, even just for reallocating existing credit lines between two cards.

Yeah, using the US Bank Cash+ Visa for 5% back on eating out (plus a $25 bonus for every $100 Cash Back that you redeem - limit once/year) and the FIA Amex for 2% back on everything else seems reasonable. I don't know what you do in your entertainment category, but the possible 5% Cash Back categories for the US Bank Cash+ Visa include Movie Theatres, so if that's your entertainment, you could do that (or buy discounted movie tickets elsewhere).

Sorry if this post deserves a thread of its own (I didn't see a way to create a new thread) or that this info belongs to the "new PenFed Visa Rewards card" thread (I think it's locked...I didn't see a "new post" button either)...

I wanted to redeem some points from my PenFed Platinum Rewards Visa card on www.penfedplatinumrewards.com and I saw the pre-paid visa category changed from the 1 rewards point equals $0.01 (i.e. 5000 points equal $50), to something like 1.22 points equal $0.01 (i.e. 6100 points equal $50).  Some other pre-paid visa options were 12000 points equal $100, 29600 points equal $250, or 59000 equal $500.

After calling PenFed rewards customer support and PenFed service center (I'll spare you the hour-long telephone conversations I had with them, since all the 1st tier support people did not know), I found out that PenFed is planning on changing the rewards redemption for pre-paid Visa cards on or after August 22.  It looks like the IT dept jumped-the-gun and updated their website early.  PenFed supervisors said that the website would show the old redemption values after few hours.  It's now currently fixed.  I don't know if other reward categories will change since I was only interested in redeeming my points for a pre-paid visa.

So if you are planning to redeem your PenFed Platinum Rewards points for a pre-paid Visa cards at the 1 point=$0.01 rate, do so now!

I mentioned to PenFed CS that they should have notified their card holders of the pending change to their redemption value system.  The CS agreed and said she would notify "management".
Given the situation, who knows if PenFed will officially implement the changes on August 22 or delay it.  I would recommend calling PenFed rewards center at 1-800-247-5626 if this affects you.

Does anyone know of some current deals (or sites that list them) for a credit card with a nice initial bonus for Travel Miles (ideally with on Southwest Airlines but other might work) or points usable for travel expenses?

Would prefer a MasterCard or maybe VISA. We won't have a problem getting approved or spending X amount in the first few months. We mostly use UPromise cards with % back for college expenses. But Daughter plans several trips this year, so finding a current offer with a nice initial bonus in travel miles would be lovely.

I'm a total novice when it comes to credit cards and miles. Is there a common correlation in points and $$? For instant, on CashBack, it seems that each point basically equals a penney. (We don't actively use that but have it on one lesser card.)

Any tips at all on credit card rewards towards travel would be helpful, especially a current promotion.

I reported earlier in the week that FIA (Fidelity Amex) raised my limit from $7500 to $12500 without pulling my credit. The lady I spoke to originally told me that they would do a "soft pull" but after asking some income type questions she told me that she would increase the limit without pulling my credit.

2 days later I get an email from Credit Karma saying I had a new hard pull on my credit report. I looked it up and it was a hard pull from FIA. I have done zero business with FIA other than with the Fidelity Amex. Any clue what's going on here?

On other news. Because of the increase to $12,500 on my Fidelity card I thought maybe I could get my $2k Amex Blue up a bit, nope. Denied. Credit is confusing.

The CSR was wrong, apparently. Try calling FIA to complain first, then if they don't help you can try writing to the right dept or dispute with the CRA(s). If they didn't get your permission to pull your credit, they're breaking the law, and you can sue.

They also gave me a very low $3200 limit. I have an 85k line on the fidelity amen so this was very disappointing.

Do they often raise the credit limit after 60 days or should I cancel the card before the yearly fee hits? I was hoping for 5k so I could get 5% off grocery/gift card bulk purchase and stack the bcp cards 6% .
