I have a personal CC line-up with some nice yielding cards, mostly cash back but i've incorporated potential UR/MR yields along with them.

 

If anyone would like to take a look: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ON2er71cLLC5yFkvKEdVLbnGSoD-FIqTgw5x39YYtAI/edit?usp=sharing

 

It's definitely not the "end-all, be-all". I'm constantly updating with new information, and some people enjoy more cash back, while others like playing the points game!


A nice list. 

 

You've already decided on a new GM car?


Thanks!

 

Well, I'm definitely in the market for a car now, and likely will be so for the years to come. Even with the recalls going on with GM, I'm looking for an AWD crossover of some sort (as a meteorologist, you're on call 24/7, 365 days a year, and living in NJ means commuting in practically every precip type imaginable! :smileytongue: ).

 

I'm leaning more toward Hyundai because a.) I'm likely not going to app and accumulate points in time, since I'll likely buy a car during the summer and b.) my family has had Hyundai's for as long as I can remember, and I'm just use to them at this point.

 

However, I'm thinking about the next 5-10 years or so, and with marriage and a family in my future, that means more cars (hello, minivans!)...so I could get a use from the GM card. As always, YMMV, but I put it on the list as a potential "winner".


By the way, that First National Bank of Omaha card is really bad... you only earn 5% cash back on amounts greater that $10,000 AND less than $13,000 (its the $150 earnings cap on the 5%...) then it drops back to 1%

 

Edit: the Fidelity Amex 2% card always beats that card.

Re: >1% cash back cards

Hmm, I just noticed the Chase Zappos.com Rewards Visa. 3 points for Zappos.com purchases, 1 point for other purchases. Redeem 2,500 points for a $25 Zappos gift certificate, which is automatically emailed when you reach the 2,500 points. 

 

Looks like a $25 signup bonus after you make youir first purchase.

Re: >1% cash back cards

I own several cards with rotating 5% cash back categories including chase freedom, citi dividend, citi forward, etc. and use them in different purchasing situations like a swiss army knife.  This iphone app helps me keep track of the categories as they update: http://www.rewardscardpicker.com/
