This is part of the reason I don't even bother to determine what I "think" my rewards will be for using a card for a particular purchase anymore.
I know most people will sit there and take the time to try to calculate out to the PENNY which card will give them the most for any given purchase. Me I deal with enough details in my job, I don't want to spend 20 minutes trying to save 2 cents I'd rather leave that 2 cents on the table it's not as if it will take me to Vegas or even buy a stamp or a piece of gum these days anyway.
Personally I just pull out the card(s) of the creditor(s) I want to keep the best business relations with - they get my swipes. I look at the overall package such as have they looked out for me in terms of when I get screwed did they hold me down or did they try to help, CLIs, overall potential in terms of rewards, customer service, and do I see them as a "keeper".
Life is enough of a hassle without me sweating a penny here and a penny there.
And yes the fact I don't want to hang myself in my closet over 2 cents makes me nuts so what.
