Re: Best CC for paying those bills.

If you do a search, there is a post somewhere about some Internet and cable providers still getting the 5% cash back from Cash+ under the cell phone Category. For Insurance, you are kind of out of luck, unless Citi Dividend offers it as a rotating Category again (they did last year for a Quarter).


That post was written before the change, based on what the poster was told by a CSR.  I selected Cell Phone for this quarter, but when my combined Verizon bill (landline/wireless/internet, but coming from Verizon Communications rather than Verizon Wireless) posted, I got 1%, and service confirmed that it needs to have the wireless MCC.

Yes, and as my post above says, that turns out not to be true!  My transaction posted as 4899 and got 1% only.
