Any CC with 5% Bill Payment like US Bank Cash+?

The subject says it all.

 

Would love to get this card but there's no online application and there's no US Bank in my locale.

 

Description of the US Bank Bill Payment category is: "Get cash back every month when you use your U.S. Bank Cash+™ Card to pay for the following common household bills — phone, internet, cable/satellite TV, utilities and insurance. Please note: Purchases made outside of these specific categories do not qualify."

I read somewhere that you can apply for the US bank Cash+ by phone. Unfortunately not online at moment. You could apply for a different card online and PC to this card later with a simple phone call. US Bank I heard is really good with PCs.

The truth is out there...
FICO scores: 724 (EQ) 709 (EX) 711 (TU) 4/14 | Goal score: 750+ (all 3)

PC to Cash+ is a bit tricky. You need to have $5K+ CL at hand and be eligible for Visa Signature.

I stand corrected.

 

Though for AT&T they label internet bill as cell phone bill.

Thanks for all the responses.

Does any card cover the insurance category?

Not sure about Barclays, pretty sure it is a no.

 

You can also get Fidelity AMEX, or Priceline Visa which give 2% return back on all purchases in the form of cash deposit or statement credit.

I have the card and I used it to pay AT&T wireless bill. It didn't count as 5%. It only gave 1% back. Now I use my US Bank Flexperks and it counts as wireless phone.
