Best Cash Rewards Card?

I searched the forum and I did find an OLD thread about this, but it was archived, and I've scoured the internet and will keep looking. But I figure someone like Rainman can point me in the direction to a good one. I'm looking for the best cash rewards card so I can use it to pay mortgage etc etc... and clear the balance at the end of the month. I have good credit. I guess I'm open to gas or groceries too but I'd prefer cash.

Thanks in advance!

I use my Chase Freedom card. It's pretty legit. No annual fee.

My current arsenal includes:

Primary: Discover Escape card ($60 annual fee, but essentially a 2% on everything card if you use the rewards for travel refunds or Amazon. Also has nice point bonuses for the first couple years.)
Secondary: American Express Costco card (3% at gas stations and restaurants, and 1% at Costco, where they don't take anything but AmEx.
Backup: Amazon Visa card (3% on Amazon purchases and works places that don't take the other two)

Of course, that works best for a Costco member who shops a lot on Amazon.

I use chase sapphire, it's points can be transferred to anything one for one, and the cards heavy, not important, and yet...it is.

Posted this in the other thread, but here is my lineup:

PenFed Cash rewards for unlimited 5% on gas.
US Bank Cash+ gives me unlimited 5% on bill pay (which they're doing away with and going to just phone bills) and restaurants.
Amex Blue Cash Preferred 6% (up to $6000 annually) on groceries.
Chase Freedom and Discover More have rotating quarterly 5% categories (capped at $1500).
Priceline Rewards Visa for unlimited 2% on everything else.

None of these have fees except the Amex BCP ($75/year), it also comes in a no fee version with 3% cash back, so it depends on how many groceries you buy.

I will also "churn" a couple cards a year to get good signup bonuses. There are probably some better rewards out there if you value frequent flyer miles, but I prefer cash back and have found these cards to be among the best out there.

I also don't really know how you're going to pay your mortgage with your credit card without a lot of workarounds... Most banks won't allow that. Let me know if yours does so I can look there when it comes time to buy a house, heh.

I also really don't like paying annual fees for my cards, so there is opportunity there if you're willing to bite that bullet.

I called my bank and they said i can do it as long as it's a card from a different lender than my mortgage lender.

It used to be for ALL bill pay. That ended this quarter and was replaced with just cell phones. They still have quite a broad range of categories that give you 5% CB.

Damn! Nice brotha. No reason not to sign up for that Priceline card and start collecting 2% CB on that.
