Sounds good to me, neither the Freedom nor the Discover More cards have gas this quarter. It also sounds like I will be able to get 5% at Fred Meyer, which American Express doesn't classify as a grocery store. I'll probably still use the Freedom for restaurants though. Between gas and groceries I won't spend $500 in the next three months so I won't lose out on any credit.
