    About the best cashback you can expect from this card as a signup bonus and it is a card I've had a few years. It's decent if you have a Chase bank account because you get 1.1% base cashback and 10 points/cents for every purchase. So I only use this card for the bonus categories or very small purchases like phone apps (because a $1 purchase gives me 11 cents cashback, not a shabby rate of return, even if it is minuscule in absolute terms ;)). The card works with points but the points are 1:1, and you can redeem as few as 2000 points for $20 cashback. Otherwise I use an SPG Amex or other card.

    I don't really like that the cash back is capped per quarter at $1,500 spending in the bonus categories, but at least there's no annual fee.

    guess the answer to that is to have more than one! We have two just by coincidence!
