    Example 1: Spend $1 on a parking meter. Earn 1 point, an effective rate of 1%.

    Example 3: Spend $100 to buy a Long Island Rail Road Peak Ten-Trip ticket between zones 1 and 3 in 2016 Q1. Earn 500 points, an effective rate of 5%.
    Example 4: Spend $1500 at 7-Eleven in 2016 Q1. Earn 7500 points, an effective rate of 5%.
  • Cardholders with a Chase checking account in older program
    1 base point per dollar plus 10% of the base points plus 10 points per transaction for all spending. Additional 4 bonus points per dollar for spending up to $1500 in quarterly categories.

they did ask a bunch of questions I just said that I could have gotten thirty and feel like such an idiot that I applied through a link which only gave me 20k while I could have gotten 30.

Yeah, that's why AA has stopped selling GCs to NJ residents as well.

Was hoping someone in the NY/NJ area had seen $500 GCs during a food run.

Stop & shop has $20-$500 visa gc.

Many times the 5% won't post until the 2nd statement.

I'd bet that's exactly the case, you'll see it on your next statement.

Sams Club isn't considered a grocery, is it?

IIRC correctly only the grocery part of target is officially eligible (not sure how they differentiate)
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.
