Do I stick with AMEX Blue or go with another credit card?

Postby KnowTheIdeal » Fri Feb 18, 2011 1:51 pm

So here's the deal:

I am a surgical resident living in New York City, who spends most of his money on food at restaurants/bars/cafeterias, groceries at the local bodegas/CVS, and online shopping like Amazon, etc. I rarely spend money on gas (like once a month, if that). Currently, I use AMEX Blue for just about everything.

Recently, I have been wondering if I am getting the "most bang for my buck." I rarely travel so airline miles mean nothing to me. I am enticed by the Citi Forward card, although I am hesitant to "leave" AMEX as my primary card for customer service and stability reasons. Other cards, like Discover, are appealing, but the rotating month (5X) points deal seems annoying. What about the AMEX Zync with the restaurant pack?

My monthly bills are about $1500 (1100-1800), of which restaurants/bars, groceries, and misc are evenly split. I always pay in full each month.

So what would you do? Stick with AMEX Blue (eventually using points for amazon purchases or gift cards) or switch to something you can recommend to me?

Thank you!

Welcome to the forum!

The Blue Cash is good for the groceries but for eating out I would recommend checking out another card I advertise and endorse, the Citi Forward credit card that can earn you rewards of up to 5% on restaurants and fast food.
