Is love to get that jcb card. I need to establish residency in Hawaii!

No, you really don't want the JCB card. Its not really 3% cash back. Not unless you spend about $5000 a year on that card.

Re: What are the Best cash back cards ???

It's 3% after the first $3000 per year, which really isn't a high barrier, and you earn an average of 1.67% on that first $3k.  So yes, I would like that card!

There really aren't that many 2+%-on-everything cards.  The Priceline Visa was a good one but that is now 1%.  If the Fidelity one doesn't work for you, maybe see which categories are the biggest and perhaps one card can give you what you need on a majority of the spending.

 

Isn't there a 3% card available only in some Western states


JCB Marukai.

https://www.jcbusa.com/for_consumers/speciality-cards/marukai-premium-jcb-card/

The card is accepted anywhere Discover and Unionpay are accepted.

 

@youngman, JCB is a very "traditional" and EXTREMELY conservative bank. With double digit inquiries on file, it's guaranteed to be a denial....

 

 


Or in the words of Suze Orman... DENIED!!  even if reconsidered...

 


Hah yeah.  Been thinking about what my own plan is post mortgage either landing or burning; that card is definitely tasty though may not qualify for it.  Probably should do something smart for later and just pickup an Ink Cash.

On the app form for that card, 4 states but not HI.

 

To Qualify:

  1. Must be U.S. citizen, permanent resident or valid visa holder
    AND
    Must be a resident of the state of California, Nevada, Oregon or Washington
  2. Must be 21 years old or older

 

ETA: OK, there is a separate form for HI for some reason, so hey, 5 states!
