Xdunlapx, I was referring to the debate over whether it's harder to get an Amex charge card or an Amex credit card. I was being facetious. That question was discussed at length in another thread, and I seem to remember that I found it to be rather lengthy and amusing at the time.
Your question is a good one. I would suggest getting a card offered by the bank where you have your checking/savings. This might be more convenient for you and easier to obtain.
American Express: Blue Cash Preferred (groceries, 6%; gas, department store, 3%); Gold Delta SkyMiles (Delta Air Lines, 2 miles/dollar, free checked bag).
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).
*All cards are registered with PriorityClub IDine program for 8 points/dollar at participating restaurants.
