It would be either groceries or gas, or whatever the one single category you spent the most on that month. Categories won't rotate like other cards. The verbiage:

Earn 5% cash back on purchases in your top eligible spend category each billing cycle, up to the first $500 spent, 1% cash back thereafter.

How about buying stuff using paypal/ebay/amazon? That kind of sucks, unless you use this on one category, like buying gas on all time...

Even if you go to warehouse stores like BJ's or Sams, there is no category for this.

Seems like a useless card unless you use it for only one of the categories and you don't spend more than $500/month in that category.

EDIT: I can actually see some use for this for someone who doesn't spend too much in those categories but wants to maximize their cash back. Especially if you use mobile payments and don't have to carry the card in your wallet.

limited to only $500 spend per billing cycle which equates to $25 cash back per month...

nice, but limited to such a small amount.

This isn't a bad single purpose card. When a person already has a few other reward cards, this one can be for anything that isn't on a bonus category.

Chase/Discover is $1500 per quarter though. It is the same maximum if you do utilize the cap per month.
