Does anyone know what happens when you overpay your utility company? Do they send you a check? I was thinking of overpaying the electricity and see what happens if I get the 5% or not. lol
I've prepaid my PSE&G utility bill before with a 5% cashback CC (citi dividend). The limit was 2k with $4 fee. Can't comment on other utility companies though.

Yes, I just redeemed a 2nd one. 1st came after 5-6 weeks
Old question but i haven't found the answer. Can i do 5% on a certain category, say hotel, in every quarter or I have to change them to something different every 3 months?

See the wiki after the first post. This is an issue for some retailers like Tiger Direct which does not give back 5% for electronics as their merchant category code is not electronics so they give one percent. This card does not post categories like Amex does for each transaction. You have to figure it out from amount of rewards posted.

But is there a way on the online account itself to see what a certain transaction is categorized as? Some cards I have allow you to drill into each transaction to see how the card is categorizing them.

Not that I know of which is why I pointed out Amex as one who does in my post. US Bank has to have the worst web site when it comes to displaying credit card info IMO. If I can get 5% back in cash am not going to complain about it too much.

Here's a quote from ealier in the thread which helps me:
Quote from warcraft82 :
You can view the cashback by transaction via their online banking:

Once you're logged in and on the main Your Accounts page, click 'Rewards Center' on the left. On the Reward Center page click 'Credit Card' in the table. Then on this Reward Details page, click the 'View Rewards History' button at the bottom.

This won't help if the merchant category isn't correct, but at least you can see which transactions are counting. It updates semi-realtime (whenever the charge has posted) so you don't have to wait until the end of the billing cycle.
