    Yeah that's smart. I was surprised when I was in the Middle East how often my Discover was accepted; and only recently (I think) NFCU did away with foreign transaction fees for their Cash Rewards card as well, which is definitely something to keep in mind if you're going to be buying a lot of stuff in foreign currencies.

    USAA now has a card with 2.5% cash back: www.usaa.com/limitless

    It requires a USAA checking account with $1000/mo direct deposit. Hard to beat otherwise.

    Thats a great deal. Link wasn't working when I clicked, but gave a phone number instead. Maybe too many AWs snatching all the cards up.

    Just ran out and got the Chase Sapphire Reserve - 100,000 points + Priority access to all airport lounges + $300 credit back on airfares. Online is showing only 50,000 points but for about 1 more week they will have the 100,000 points if you apply in person at a Chase branch. Good luck.

    The $300 credit is actually a travel credit.
    I've had it applied to bar/restaurant tabs, airport parking, and Uber rides.

    Just pointing that out, since you probably want to balance that out with the credits from the Amex or other cards which may not be as flexible.
