A list of my cards and what I use them for.

  • Gas

  • Groceries

  • Amex offers (we've been able to earn a ton of bonus points just by keeping our eye out for these)

  • This is a powerhouse of a card with no annual fee.

  • I use it for 5x points on office supply stores and internet, cable and phone bills. The points can then be transferred over to my Chase Sapphire.
