Thanks for all the advice. I am still green when it comes to points but I have been doing my research over time on what is best and what I can do. I probably will be using the card for the cash back for now as I am kind of in the dark as far as how a baby is going to impact the finances. I usually research everthing when it comes to everything (renting, buying house, ect) but it seems to come down to the individual baby so it will be a interesting aventure when it comes to finances.
I did very well on the card and I got the card as you said on the 29th. CLI was a wopping 12.5K and rate was 13.99 but I always plan to pay it right away. Funny thing is Amex only gave me a 2k limit on the everyday card but I don't totally care.
As far as what I consider average on gas I am about 14,000 miles per year and with a car that runs about 26MPG year round I am guessing around $1,800 - $2,000 a year in gas. I still find myself looking at other cards but for now I will wait and see how these play out for right now.
