Great rewards card

This is an excellent rewards card, with a pretty nice sign up bonus. I have this card coupled with the Discover It card, and choose which card to use at whichever one gives me the 5% back for that merchant (it is annoying when both cards have the same categories for the same quarter though). Having the Visa logo makes this card more widely accepted. In my experience, Chase does seem to be quite conservative about who they approve and with credit limits, however.
