SallieMae Card converting to Barclays

I just got a letter that my salliemae 2% visa is being converted to a mastercard by barclays with a new reward program 5% cashback up to $250 a month for gas and groceries and 5% cashback on books up to $750 a month. I dont spend more than this a month on either categories so it works for me. I like my fidelity 2% amex better for the everything else that doesnt have a bonus category because sallie mae required 25,000 points before you can get a 1:1 redemption otherwise its less and this new program requires only 2,500 points to redeem and the fidelity only requires 5,000 points to redeem and I have something better to use at sams club instead of my sams discover because i dont spend enough there to get to the 1% tier same with discover i only use it for bonus categories

Re: SallieMae Card converting to Barclays

The 5% isnt a true 5% you get 1% on all purchases, 2% on movie theaters, 3% on exxon mobil gas, and everything above that is only with upromise affiliates, which you can see on upromise.com. certain restaurants and websites, where you get cash back anyways so long as you go through the site. With the card you just get bonus cash back.

I think you have one of the older cards, I don't think they offer that one anymore. The only sallie mae card I've been able to find is the UPromise.
