Got the Cash+ card today. Set up online access, auto bill pay from checking, account alerts, selected rewards categories (groceries, car rental, utility/phone/internet/insurance bills) for this quarter. Contacted my autobillers and switched to Cash+ from Fidelity Amex.
US Bank website is very cumbersome for setting up alerts; you have to view the disclosure statement for every single alert that you activate. However, I was able to select my autobill debit date online (with other cards I've had to call for this).
It looks as if the full slate of reward categories will be available every quarter; the literature that accompanys the card says you can choose the same categories every quarter if you wish. I was worried that some categories might not be available every quarter (see above).
Assuming the card works as I've been led to believe, my regular rewards categories will be groceries, bills, and restaurants. I didn't choose restaurants this quarter because I'm getting 5% from Chase. I'll be renting a car next month, so I chose that instead.
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.
