That will be nice! I'm very disappointed this quarter since they're both doing gas....I buy at most $30 worth of gas about every 3 months. So both cards are useless for me right now with category spending. Restaurants and groceries are two of my biggest spend categories though (along with online shopping).

I've been thinking of opening a separate savings account just for cash back, but a promo like that could change things. I've been accumulating cash back for a while and have a good amount built up. Might as well get it into an insured bank account (plus a little interest wouldn't hurt).
Yeah, I didn't know that either. I've had mine for well over a year though, so I'm sure I'm not entitled to any new account bonus. Their checking account is pretty nice too. You get .10 cash back on every transaction (debit, deposit, or bill pay, up to 300 transactions I think). Not much, but theoretically any time you would be charging something tiny on another card, you're better off rewards-wise using the cashback checking instead. In practice I don't bother with it though since I don't even carry the card.
