Best reward card for entertainment

So I am trying to decide on my next completely unnecessary but want it anyway, credit card.

 

I have been looking at a few.. Uber Visa, Amex Gold, Amex BCP, and Savor.

 

I was thinking of going for a card that gives good rewards of course but centers on restraunts and entertainment. Most reward points would go towards Amazon stuff with some travel mixed in.

Does anyone else like these cards and recommend them? I was thinking I may have to do a spreadsheet lol

Re: Best reward card for entertainment

Points you get Gold, cashback Uber or Savor. Personally, I'd get the Savor because their entertainment category is immense and covers quite a lot and with dining to boot at 4% assuming you can break even on the AF.

I’d say the Savor would be a good match. The “entertainment” category is quite broad. 4% adds up quickly to buy you Amazon stuff lol
Discover It: 19.7k
Amex BCE: 18k
Citi DC: 5.7k

Sounds like we have a winner! There’s also the Savor One if you don’t want the AF.

Re: Best reward card for entertainment

If only concerned about dining & entertainment, the Marvel card & Cap1 cards should be your top choices.

For the 4% card with a $95 annual fee, that means you'd have to spend $9,500/year in those categories to break even compared to the 3% cards with $0 AF.
Only get the 4% card if you intend to spend more than 9,500/year on it in only dining/entertainment. If you are questioning if you will, or think your yearly spend will be around $10,000 I would stick with the 3% cards. You'll find yourself justifying buying something to get over the 9,500 mark. Spend an extra $30 for an extra 1% cash back is a bad use of money. And if you're planning to be a little over the 9.5k mark, you possibly won't be. Some random merchant you'd think is a dining or category will inevitably not be so.

I see you mentioned the BCP & Gold...
The BCP only does groceries (well, groceries & a lot of other things), not dining. The Gold is groceries & dining, but no entertainment.
If you meant to say you're looking to cover grocery expenses, too, then the BCP card is a very fine card. You may want to get both the BCP and one of those previous dining/ent cards.

The Gold is a whole 'nother beast, as everything else are cash back cards. The Gold earns points. Most people value those points around 1.5-2 cents each, depending what you redeem them for (though you could straight redeem them at 1 cent each easily). The card carries a sizeable annual fee, too. The AF can mostly be offset by the many credits it offers, provided you can actually utilize them. For some people they work great, while others have no usage for them.

Good luck deciding what cars/combo of cards is right for you!
