US bank cash+ is excellent deal, you can put travel and one more category on 5% cash back, grocery or gas or drug store on 2%.

I wish my family was more open about finances.
My grandfather was a Barnett Bank VP, and I never heard him talk about it, never mind talking about the 100 CCs and their limits (when I say 100 CCs, I'm in no way exagerating)
Him talking to my dad about finances as a kid, would have certainly helped me, as I'm sure he/she (mom) would have been more open to talk/teach me.
