USAA has a 5% Cash Back on up to $3000 gas per year. No AF. 2% Grocery, 1% Everything else. It’s up to $3K per year per category. You do need to be a USAA memer though.

I just got tired of looking and applied for it. I got approved of $6k, just going to use it for gas & food and pay it off every week. It's exactly what I wanted, so I can build my credit even higher now. How can you get cash back if you pay it off every other week so you won't be charged interest?

USAA let’s you redeem your reward to your savings account as often as you want to. From there you can either transfer it to whatever bank you normally use or just let it sit in savings. Or you can apply it as a statement credit. The rewards usually post pretty quickly, USAA doesn’t wait until the end of the billing cycle or the statement cycle like many seem to do.

PenFed 5x per dollar spent on gas is good!
