It will at least make them competitive. Would be very nice indeed.

Really? With tier removed and no 0.25% permanent on Walmart, Dollar Tree, etc?

Full 1% combined that with discounted gift card ($20 for $25 GC) will make it my daily use card!
In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi TY Preferred (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)
Discover it (07/2012) | AMEX BCP (09/2012) | TD/Target REDCard (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012)
BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)

At 1% cash back and giving 20% discounted gift cards is equal to 1.2% cash back if my math is correct. Which isn't that great.

I've actually really enjoyed having an IT card. I've hardly used it since I got it back in August, and I'm already at $50 cash back.

Definitely would see more play if it was at 1%.
American Express '02: Platinum, Blue Cash Preferred 6k, SPG 2k, Delta Gold 1k
Barclaycard '11: Apple Financing Card 2.5k
Citi: Diamond Rewards 1.5k
Chase: Freedom 500
Discover '12: Discover IT 1.5k

That will place it in the same category as all the other 1% cards, with only half the rewards of a Priceline or Fidelity Amex card.

But, it has 5% bonus categories, which the Priceline and Fidelity lack.

I think this update would put it a step above the Freedom in pure cash-back, but Freedom still offers the ability to transfer points to a CSP for travel redemption.

irvine801 - A transition to a points system with the ability to transfer points from IT to a Discover Miles or Escape card would increase value even more.
