Are you looking to do a large amount of spending? Are you looking for 1 category or multiple?

The BofA Cash Rewards is nice for small (under $2,500 spend per quarter) spending.

No AF, 3% cash back on one (changeable) category (you can change once per month)
120 characters? Hmm, I wonder what I could write with 64 characters. Boy, it's gonna be hard to use up 15 characters. W-

Is there any harm in opening a account with a airline, for example opening a AA account, in regard to getting bonuses if you later decide to open a AA Credit Card?

I have a Hilton Aspire card and the annual fee was just charged.  Anyone know if I try to use the Resort (now Restaurant) credits and Airline credits within the month wait for the credits to post and then downgrade the card but all within the statement closing date will the credits stay or will Amex reverse the credits?

Not sure this is the correct thread. If not please point me to the right one.

I'm looking to open a CC that I'll do about $35K in spending a year, mixed categories.
I currently have Chase Freedom/Reserve/Ink. I am thinking about going for the United Business card, or go into the world of Amex MR cards.

The amount I'm going to do on this card is fixed, so I won't be able to churn a lot of points. That's why I thought that the United card will give me the benefits the card has, and I'll be able to combine it with my Chase UR.

Amex is adding a $120 uber credit to the Gold card. Just received an email.

can someone please add the AMEX everyday cards to the wiki

I don't want to mess up the wiki, can someone please add them? It seems they are both in one thread here: https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=39057.0

TIA!
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
