I just redeemed what I suspect will be my last Sallie Mae statement credit for a while.
Gas and groceries are now going on EDP, so SM's only remaining category is Amazon (and very infrequently, brick-and-mortar bookstores).
Discover has 5% on Amazon in Q3 and Freedom has Amazon in Q4, and these cards have a higher cpp value.
I'll give SM minimal activity to keep the card open, but I probably won't put serious spending on it until 2016. Even then, I'd need to buy $500 of stuff to redeem a $25 statement credit.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt, Arrival
May close or PC: Prestige, BrooksBros
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech
