Any folks on here from the Connecticut area, you should check out the Visa cards from Liberty Bank.

VisaÂ® Bonus Rewards PLUS Card: Automatically earn 50% more points on your purchases each month.
The first has no annual fee and the other is 50 dollars. I think that's well worth it to be earning 1.5% straight across the board. I have not seen any major banks with a product that can compete with that. All seem to focus on categories but only give 1% cash back normally.
