1.5% Cash Back Credit Card?

Postby Mr Chopstix » Sat Dec 11, 2010 4:48 am

For a long time I thought a 1.5% cash back credit card was the best thing out there but I hear there are now cards that give 2%. I am thinking about ditching my Blue and switching to either the Discover Escape (2%) or the Fidelity Retirement Rewards (2%). The downside is that if I went with the latter it would require opening a Fidelity account. Would that be worth it to get the 2% cash back or should I go with the Discover?

I have the Fidelity card and it's great. However, I already had accounts at Fidelity when I opened it. The Discover card really is de classe, even the writers on "Family Guy" think so.
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.
