Too bad the limit for the gas/groceries is not like $500. I spend more than $250/month on gas.
Currently using my BOA 123 as primary card. But if there are enough advantages, I'd consider the SM MC.

I have this card. Its an excellent card IMO. The rewards make it my primary gas, groceries, and Amazon card.
5% up to $250/month on gas. Works for me since I spend about $75-120/month on gas.
5% up to $250/month on groceries. Again, works perfectly for my grocery budget. And I always have BCE to fall back on at 3%.
5% up to $750/month on bookstores, including Amazon. Excellent! I'm a big Amazon shopper so this is great.
And the best part IMO, is that the cash back points are earned immediately after a purchase clears instead of all at once as the statement closes like most cash back cards.

I WANT this card... but getting a 2nd Barclay Card seems a little bit like getting a Citi Recon! AND.... IF you don't get the Signature what do the rewards drop down to?
