Best CC for paying those bills.

Now that the new quarter has started and US Bank no longer offers 5% bill payment I am curious as to what fellow members here use for their bills. Such as insurance, Cable, Internet etc. Im going to continue using my Cash+ for my cell phones but want to utilize another card for my other bills. any suggestions?

Re: Best CC for paying those bills.

Discover, if you do bill pay through discover you get 2% cash back with the more or the it. And I believe 3 or 4 miles pet dollar with the escape. Which is 3-4% cash back. Not sure about the escape but pretty sure about the others

I'm in the same boat.  I am really missing that bill pay category!  I'm thinking about app'ing for the Priceline Visa to get 2%.  Until then, I'm probably going to use my Cap One Cash Rewards card for the 1.5%.  Seems so paltry in comparison to the 5%!!  Smiley Sad

I know im just glad I got 1 more rewards redemption + the  $25 gift card. I might go with the Discover It but its the lowest limit I have and although I PIF my bills are spread out so there will most likely be something reporting at the end of the month. I also dont like how the only way I can redeem for cash before $50 is by purchasing something from Amazon.

Re: Best CC for paying those bills.

If you are willing to get business cards, the Chase Ink series gives 5% for phones/internet/cable (up to $50K a year, which hopefully is enough for most!)

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).


CC's: AMEX (4), Alliant Visa, PenFed AMEX, Pen Fed Promise, Citi (3), Chase (6), US Bank Cash+, Huntington Voice, UMB Visa, Nasa Plat Cash Visa, Barclay's Visa, Discover IT, Cap One QS, BOA (2), BMW Visa, 5/3 RLR MC, Diner's Club MC; FNBO Amex; Comenity Visa/MC (3), Ebates Visa Siggy, Nordstrom Visa, Walmart MC, Sam's Club MC; A few assorted store cards.
