That's some stalker behavior right there.
I think "Everyday" is a great name for the card. The rewards program is well designed to incentivize a lot of use. I can imagine the base Everyday finding its way into my wallet in April and replacing the Starwood as my go-to card for groceries and gas.
But, I'm not sure the Everyday Preferred provides enough value that I would keep it in my wallet at $95 a year. Assuming I hit the $6k cap on groceries and spend $40 a week on gas during the quarters Chase doesn't offer 5x:
- Code: Select all
Everyday Preferred Everyday
Groceries $6,000 27,000 14,400
Gas $1,040 3,120 1,248
Total 30,120 15,648
Difference - 14,472
Well, actually, I guess it would cover the fee and then some. 30,000 points might be enough earning for me to keep a $95 card around. To compare, I collected 36,000 on $18,500 from the CSP in the last 11 months.
New wallet may be: CSP, Freedom, Ink, Everyday Preferred, Arrival. Five cards seems like such a small amount, though!
