For what? Cashback? Travel rewards? Points?

Haha the post in the last forum we were both in made me ask this. Thought it would be interesting to see what people could come up with.
How about one for each category, or just anything you can think of. Include application requirements and terms for bonus rewards.
$100 bonus with $500 in purchases during the first 3 months
Capital one Venture one
10,000 miles with $1000 in spending during first 3 months
No foreign transaction fees

For points / travel, I'm a fan of my Citi Hilton HHonors card. Chase Freedom is also excellent. While I'm loathe to recommend anything put out by Capital One, their VentureOne card isn't bad either.

Thanks for the post
I think Cap1 has some of the poorest customer service in the industry.
I will look into the Citi Card.
Do you have a referal link? If so, feel free to post it.

If you utilize Discover's 5% cash back rewards program, it is a great no af card.
Have you had any problems with acceptance or merchant classifications?

Nah, just apply for the card if you like. I will say that they are going to look at more than scores with this card. They have minimum income floors in place as well.

Nope. I run quite a bit on it every month and pay it in full twice a month, and have never had any problems (so far - knock on wood). Use it all over the place too.
