Re: 2%+ Cash Back on Everything Cards

I like my freedom plus card that gives 3% on top 6 categories.
I don't think I will really ever find myself with over 6 categories, so I should always get 3%!
It's not clear from your post, but the Freedom Plus card only gives you 3% back for the top 6 categories OF 15 categories they define - it doesn't cover all purchases (e.g. restaurants, hotels, bookstores, WalMart, etc will never get 3%).
Also, from what I've seen, the old regular Freedom card (3% on top 3 categories) has not been offered since October - it's now the 3% on certain pre-defined categories for each quarter. The Freedom card I got in October still has the 3%-top-3 rewards, fortunately (for now, at least!).
