I was looking at the various 5% cash back categories from Chase Freedom, US Bank Cash+, and Discover It.
I noticed that none of them ever seem to offer 5% off at liquor stores.
It's certainly a practical category for many people. And, from an ethical standpoint, (I think) spending at liquor stores earns a base rate of cash back, and alcohol purchased at a grocery store would earn any special grocery rate. I don't know how the special cash back policies might conflict with state excise taxes and price controls, though.
They could launch a new card and call it the DrunCard
Or has some issuer already done this without my knowledge?
