Remember to hit the card comparison button (i.e., "GO") at the right.

Fidelity offers a few rare 2% cards.  There are a few 5%Gas/Grocery/Drugstore (G/G/D) cards; but hidden for good reasons.  Amex BCP (Blue Cash Preferred) cards offered 6% CB without limit for 1-2 years, not has an annual limit of $6K.  Amex BCP cards, with unlimited 6% CB, would win the best CB card award undoubtfully.  After imposing a limit on Amex BCP card, the classical Amex Blue Cash card is still one of the best CB cards.  Citi ThankYou Preferred (TYP) card had a promotional 1-year offer with unlimited 5% G/G/D; but the application links quickly disappeared.

51hh, do you have an American Express card? If yes, do you have any problems with using it? Is it accepted everwhere?

I use American Express cards selectively: the 6% BCP is used for supermarket mainly.  I have "tons" of Amex cards for the year-end small-business ($25 per card) promotions.

But no, I do not use Amex cards for other purposes. 

But one can always buy $500 Visa GCs with Amex 6% cards at supermarket; then all the purchases with the Visa cards are essentially 5% CB (with 1% GC purchase fee).
