I guess any card that has unusually good rewards is going to get nerfed sooner or later. Currently this is still 4.1% or so (depending on redemption) on gas, which is still better than most, but any downgrade gives a very negative impression. I'll just use my TYP for now, and see what happens to the Penfed Cash Rewards card.

Hopefully, something new will come out with the best rewards for the best credit. I am glad that I saw this thread yesterday though, because it saves me a hard inq and probable denial for one of the most prudent lenders... only for the chance to get a card that has been consistently downgraded.
I wonder if PenFed will change their underwriting criteria since their card has lost much of its appeal and is no longer outrageously awesome.

Does penfed let you pc to the cash rewards card?
I plan to wait for a bit before trying. If 5% off gas is unsustainable on one card, I would expect some change in Cash Rewards at some point.
