Amusement Park Credit Card Catagory

Postby ckkiw8 » Mon Aug 19, 2013 5:37 pm

I am looking to spend a good amount of money on amusement park tickets through a travel website called Get Away Today. Just trying to determine which card I should use. Do you think this would be classified as travel? Misc? I'm not sure on this one.. Any help?

Looking at your CC signature, It depends on what you want back really. If you want points I would choose the Chase Sapphire, where if you're looking for Cash Back I would use the Amex Blue Cash Everyday depending on what categories you chose for the US Bank Cash+. If you chose travel or entertainment I would use the USBank Cash+. Since you're booking the tickets on a travel website I would assume it's classified under travel but there is always a chance it could count as entertainment.

Unless someone can correct me, my Cash+ catagories only include Hotels and Movie Theaters. Nothing else travel or entertainment related.

It actually dawned on me that my Chase might be the best bet at 2% in Travel if that above statement is true.

Right. I didn't realize they didn't have a travel category on the Cash+ Card. My bad! And I would have to agree with that being said that Sapphire would probably be the best. Upon further inspection of the website, I would have to say it would most likely count as a travel purchase. Even if by some off-chance it didn't count as a travel purchase, I still think Sapphire might be the best option.

Citi Forward appears to include entertainment, but considering you can book things like hotels and plane tickets on this website I would find it unlikely that it would count as an entertainment purchase.
