    Default Which credit card for best sign-up rewards?

    Hi,
    I'm planning to pay my tuition over the next 4 months (4 month, each payment 2500$);

    Which credit card would you think offers the best cash back bonus for sign up / spending?

    BTW My school charges a 2.5% "convenience fee" when using credit cards.

    Thank you,
    Fred

    Chase Sapphire Preferred gives a 40k point bonus for spending $3k in the first 3 months which is good for $400 cash or $500 in travel rewards. You have to have excellent credit or a semi-strong relationship with Chase in order to get it though, but it's a pretty awesome card.
