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.

congrats on the card! 

 

this card looks like a really good card to have. 

sadly living in mass no way for me to apply.

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?
