Citi Forward would work then, but depends what your history looks like. If you have at least 6 months of good solid history and no baddies you should have a good chance, good luck!

Citi Forward card, IF you are a student.

 

Otherwise its best to work on getting a US Bank Cash+ card. If you can't apply in a branch, then go for a US Bank Platinum, and after a few months call to PC it to the Cash+, its worth the effort. No signup bonus though.

 

After that, you have to drop down to 3% restaurant options. Chase AARP visa signature card(3% Gas Station and Restaurant, no caps), or Huntington Voice. Or I suppose the American Express Lowes Business Rewards card (3X Restaurant, Office Supply stores, Wireless telephone), if you are willing to consider business cards.

You're probably right I think I'm intrigued by the sign up bonus. I'm itching for another card

+1    I was thinking the same thing. You seem to have a great cc lineup!  Btw, how do you like your Chase Hyatt?  I was just approved earlier this week, and the signup bonus seems to be really good.

You could also get a Chase Amazon card then, and a Citi Dividend as well. Who knows, you might even use the Dividend someday for the 5% rotating category.

 

Eventually you would transfer the credit limit from the Chase Amazon to your Freedom, and close the Amazon.

 

It looks like you haven't gotten a Barclaycard signup bonus yet. I suggest the Sallie Mae Rewards :smileywink:

I just met the spend requirement on the Hyatt card and am looking forward for my two free nights....cool looking card though, I probably wont use it a ton for everyday spending but will keep for the one free night a year
