I use cashback cards because I travel very little and like the transparency of cashback rewards, i.e., it's easy to figure out what percentage rebate you're earning.
Have any moderate to heavy users of travel reward cards figured out the average percentage rebate they earn on their purchases with travel rewards? My point is that ticket prices vary so widely that it must be hard to figure out the dollar value of what you're getting as a perk.
American Express: Blue Cash Preferred (groceries, 6%; gas, department store, 3%); Gold Delta SkyMiles (Delta Air Lines, 2 miles/dollar, free checked bag).
US Bank: Cash+ (utilities, phone, internet, restaurant, 5%; drugstores, 2%).
FIA Card Services: Fidelity Amex (everything, 2%); Fidelity Visa (everything, 1.5%).
Chase: Freedom (rotating, 5%); Amazon (Amazon.com, 3%); PriorityClub (IHG hotels, 5 points/dollar); Sapphire (not in use).
*All cards are registered with PriorityClub IDine program for 8 points/dollar at participating restaurants.
