However, does the Citi Forward sill give you 5 points for each dollar you spend at Amazon.com? I know it used to, but I thought that ended. Can anyone confirm or deny this from their recent experience with the Citi Forward card?

|beerman235||For us old folks there's the AARP card from Chase. I think you need to be an AARP member. 5% on airfare, hotels, travel agents and rental cars. When I signed up they included 5% on everything for 6 months, but they canceled that policy. Probably because of me.|

|RaptorHunter||Why doesn't this post mention the citi forward giving you 5% back on ANYTHING you buy at amazon.com? IMO the best deal out there. And the points can actually be traded in at more than a dollar a point. Just do a search for "citi points" on here and you will see that these deals come up from time to time.|

I've been taking another look at this article and running the numbers again. These 2% back on everything cards may work well in a 3 card wallet. This AmEx for groceries, gas GC and department stores/amazon. A rotating catagory card like Chase Freedom or Discover for movies/restaurants/department stores when they hit 5% and one of the 2% back cards on everything else.
The down side to that strategy is that you need to hit 25,000 points ($12,500) on the 2% cards to cash out. If I only used it on my "other" purchases, it would probably take me 18-24 months to hit that and its a third account to track.
I'm trying to decide if it worth it. As it is, asking the wife to only use the Freedom/Discover card for certain stores at certain times of year, if going to take some work.
I miss the old Freedom card that gave me 5% back on my top 5 categories and $50 bonus, if I waited until I hit $200 to cash out. That was the best card ever!

Besides the Amex blue preferred, the secondary card used should be the discover escape card. it is a flat 2% with no minimum tier. There is a yearly fee, but it is minimal.
