I've had the card for several years and like it and Chase fine. However, I only use it for purchases on which I'll earn 5% as I can get 2% on everything else using other card(s). If you have a checking account with Chase they will give you a modest bump in your monthly points reward. I forget what it is exactly but 10 points per transaction and 10% of monthly points reward sounds right. So if you had 10 transactions you'd get 100 extra points ($1.00) and for $1,000 in transactions on which you earned 1,000 points you'd get an extra 100 points. I think. Call them and ask. The website is nice and it integrates all of your Chase credit/banking accounts. Checking can be free with direct deposit. Lots of ATMs, too.
But that's more than you wanted to know.
