That could make the card useful for me, unless that made it more restrictive and had to choose from Amazon and department stores. I do like the department store category a lot, but it's very lackluster for me at that time of year. I live in Florida and hardly have any need for anything the rest of the country considers "winter." It would have been much more useful if they made Q3 department stores, moved home improvement to earlier in the year, and leave gas at the end of the year. I never got a good use out of Discover this year because the categories have been very untimely for when I use those categories most. They should release all the categories for the year and let you select when to use them.
Freedom used to give 3% automatically in a quarter's biggest three categories (from a long list of possibilities), I've read. Presumably this was before it offered 5%.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt, Arrival
May close or PC: Prestige, BrooksBros
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech
