Possible to get a good rewards card from a smaller bank?
Without getting too much into it, I've been stuck with Chase bank for a few years now after an illness and paying down CC debt. They were completely unwilling to bring down an absurdly high rate to help me through it. Anyway, finally paid down and I want to move far away from them.
I am moving my business and personal account to a small bank in my home town where the staff is wonderful and very helpful.
The problem comes with rewards points. What I do like about Chase and some other larger banks I have looked at is they have good rewards points. Previous to me being sick I would pay off my card every month and the rewards were basically free money. Looking at nerdwallet and threads here on credit cards I'm trying to decide between something new. Maybe a travel card?
Ironically, it would seem the best way to stick it to Chase is to borrow their money, pay off every month and take their rewards. Maybe I am just being petty and spiteful for something that ultimately was my responsibility.
Anyway, just interested in some more input if anyone wants to offer any.
