I can't answer the question about the MCC for that particular park, but I do know that the Ace card you mentioned is a complete joke if the terms on that page are accurate. It takes 12,500 points to get a $25 Ace gift card, so Ace points are worth 0.2 cents per point. (??) Even if you got 10% at your amusement park with it you'd still be better off using any 1% card or better.

Also you save a bunch more money just staying the heck out of Ace stores in the first place.

Around here, grocery store chains sell amusement park tickets (when in season) which is good scheme for a 5+% grocery card. I noticed there were other online places that were selling discount tickets for Knott's, so be sure to run the numbers to see if it wouldn't be a better deal to just pay with a 2% card and get the tickets for cheaper.

 It's actually 10% back @ ACE (the only thing I use it for) I buy propane refills and other "sale" stuff there to make it worth while.

But you're right in that I'll take 5% cash back 


Went to Knotts in October and made the mistake of not buying online a few days beforehand. It's significantly cheaper. There is also a season pass to Knotts, San Diego Safari, Disneyland, and California Adventure. Might be worth it if you go a lot.

Sorry no other advice.
