Most of the places all sound so artsy-fartsy and boutique. How about some offers for places that us normal folk shop at? Wipe_masta is lucky to get restaurant offers. I never get those. I did get one for $10 back when spending $50 at Lowes. Now that one I will actually use. (That's 20% cash back if you limit your transaction to $50, which is double the cash back that Chase and Discover are offering this quarter!) I'd like to see places like Target, cable/internet or wireless service offers, etc. While I'm ranting, personally I'd like to see the BCE replace department stores with restaurants for the 2% back. I rarely shop at department stores.
This is where Discover is much better. Discounts at normal stores you would shop at, provided you shop online. Not everything can be a good deal for the customer. In the case of BCE, they're already giving you (and me) a great deal with those permanent categories the way they are given the $0 annual fee.
