If I were you I'd buy a Visa GC and test what bills you can pay. I buy Visa's... you'd be surprised at how many online places will take them. I've only had one place that wouldn't.

Just got approved for the TYP. Hopefully its for the 12 month promo. It will see some serious abuse if it is :-)

Just got my TYP in the mail today. Called to activate and the CSR confirmed that I am getting 5x points on grocery, drug, and gas. So let the abuse begin! BCP will be downgraded soon.

On a side note for anyone that is considering a downgrade from BCP, they are offering a prorated refund of your annual fee if you downgrade because they changed the terms.
