Nice find for those that qualify, and are cash back CC users.
Hey guys, so I was seeing if there was a 5% on home improvement and charity and I actually found the card, its from safe cu. The categories are home improvement, charity, utilities, and movie theatres. min. Redemption is $10, I believe its only for people in Northern California, but when I was talking to the rep, she said they recently branched out to Alameda county a few months ago, so I couldn't even get the card. So, I believe they publicly branched out to all counties around the bay area. They give 3% on gas, groceries, and restaurants. Not bad at all! Just what I was looking for!
I even asked how long they had it for and she said she been working there for 3 years and they never changed the categories or replace it with anything, so thats really good.
I don't know if this applies for getting the credit card (bad experience with Golden One!) but to join the CU you can be "an employee or member" of a lot of things, including Aerospace Musuem of California. This costs $75 to join but presumably you need to do it only once.
