    I've had it with Citi so am in the market for a new credit card.

    I don't want any annual fee and a reward in the form of cash (I wouldn't use miles). Anyone have a card they really like?

    I have that card too. IIRC I got like a $50 or $75 Amazon gift card just for opening it. I do quite a bit of shopping there so the Amazon rewards are nice.

    I used the REI visa card for a long time. I was able to get free gear with the rewards from REI. Now I have all the gear I need in fact to much. Now I am using a Wells Frago credit card. My mortgage is with them so the rewards money goes towards the principal on my house. I do make sure the card is paid in full each month

    TJ Id recommend a points card, all of mine generate some form of points. Certain transactions count for double points, some even get 5x the points. Point is points are the way to go.

    I can redeem my points for cash (takes a ton of points though), tickets to events, merchandise, air miles, etc.

    0% interest is the way to go if you can find it.

    I use my Titans VISA anywhere I can, but the interest rate is high, I just like showing off my team every time I buy things. Sometimes it sparks some good football talk.
