I have never used the card at Walmart so I am not sure how they code but the redemption value is .8503 as it take 5880 points to receive a $50.00 pre-paid Visa card.
So I'm thinking applying for one of these cards in case Sallie (or when rather) hits the fan. So far I like the straight forward 5% that the cash reward offers. I don't see 3% for grocery on this one.
However the Platinum Rewards seems nice too. It offers 5 points on gas and 3 points on groceries. Now I'm interested in the groceries for Walmart purchases. Does it count super center as grocery? Also what are the point redemption values?
Has anyone who has the card have insight with the rewards ans Pen Fed?
Also I'm on the fence on whether I should apply now and let it age or wait till Sallie dies and then apply.
Thanks for all the help!

+1 I have this card and use it strictly for gasoline...not really worth it for much else in regards to rewards as it only pays 5% at the pump. Actually thinking about dropping this limit down to $1k and moving the rest to another card.
I recently got the card and opened the money market account with $25. I believe that's all required. I later decided to open a checking account which came with the thrifty credit stuff.
No the Platinum Rewards Visa only redeems for pre-paid visa cards, gift cards, e-gift cards, shopping, travel and charity. You can not get a check, credit statement or deposit it into another account.
I see. Does the Platinum Cash rewards do statement credit? I read somewhere I can qualify for the 5% if I have a money market savings with them? Is there a min balance for those accounts to avoid fees?
