In the end pick the one card that is doing the most for you and put most of your charges through there card. For me that is AMEX


I spend about 2k a month on the cash+, I have the original amex blue cash with the $6500 yearly initial spending to get to the 5% rewards but they have no caps and last year I spend about 15k just on groceries alone.

Is there a URL to change in US Bank Cash+ terms regarding $25 bonus per >$100 redemption? I've always redeemed in $100 increments to max out the bonus, and I just did so again yesterday without any issue. I don't recall seeing a notice from US Bank on this change. A URL would be appreciated.
