+1 for Discover as well. BCE for everything else unless it's at Best Buy which has 5% for Chase Freedom. For those shoppers out there, don't forget Macy's Friends and Family normally runs around Black Friday which is typically 25% off most items. Tis the season to capitalize on those Holiday discounts.

Target RedCard (only at Target obviously) for the 5% discount. BestBuy store card, if I end up buying any gifts there that would have a promotional financing deal. Discover for 5% on online purchases. For other in-store purchases, my Barclaycard Rewards Mastercard.

Discover for online shopping and department stores. I'll probably use my Amex for anything else.
