I use the Restaurants and Electronic Stores 5% categories because I spend far more on those 2 than on Fast Food. For Fast Food, I use my Citi Forward which is 4% when I redeem on Amazon.com. (You can get 5% if you have a TY card but I don't).

It just all depends on how much you spend in those categories. It could definitely be very worthwhile.


As a dining card, it destroys any other card out there. I don't see why they can't combine the dining card, especially because of the $2K quarterly cap on the 5% categories. They could also let you have all 3 everyday categories but put a cap on them.
Blue Cash Preferred ($24K), Costco TrueEarnings ($8K), Better Balance Rewards ($6K), CashForward ($15K), Sallie Mae Rewards ($10K), Quicksilver ($17K), AARP Rewards ($15K), Freedom ($15K), Double Cash ($16.5K), It ($28.5K), Fidelity Investment Rewards ($18K), Cash+ ($11K)
