Thanks for the info on Bed Bath and Beyond. I need to figure out what category that would be for credit cards. Is that a department store? I have a Bed, Bath, and Beyond not too far from my house.

Hey Future If I understand your post correctly. it would be your Citi Forward card, Bed bath and beyond sell a ton of gift cards but mostly
for restaurants like Ruby Tuesdays, Pf Changs, the Cheese cake factory, Red lobster, Fridays , Olive Gardens some California pizza kitchen.
for movies it would be your Bank of America card the gift card is the lowes cinema movies.

Bed bath and beyond is considered a home store, I guess it would be like home goods.
