I think -- besides several other issues -- there is the matter of misrepresentation here. If you present one card to a merchant (gold MasterCard, for example) and the strip swipes as (Visa signature, for example), you have given the merchant something different from what you represented. Whether the distinction is a "real difference" is moot; something was offered and something different was given without the knowledge of the merchant.

US Bank: Cash+ (utilities, phone, internet, restaurant, 5%; drugstores, 2%).
FIA Card Services: Fidelity Amex (everything, 2%); Fidelity Visa (everything, 1.5%).
Chase: Freedom (rotating, 5%); Amazon (Amazon.com, 3%); PriorityClub (IHG hotels, 5 points/dollar); Sapphire (not in use).
