Bill pay is a common choice because few cards cover that.  Depending on your spend, remember that this doesn't have a cap on rewards, most of the rotating 5% do.

Yes, it is. They did it for me after approving credit limit increase. Banking with them helps too.

The thing is, I'm not having to worry about bills yet because I'm still a full time student. I've got a Chase Freedom, CSP, Discover More, and BCE. So I think department stores and electronics stores make the most sense, since Discover and Freedom trade off of restaurants for 5% and CSP is 2x points for food as well. Do you guys have any better suggestions?
