Farm Bureau Bank might just be your best bet. You can only earn a certain number of points per year, I believe it is 60,000 ($1 spent = 1 point). But that would still get you over $1200 cash back (you do have to wait until you accumulate 35,000 in points to claim a $700 rebate, otherwise you get less than 2% cash back).

Another alternative, if you find you are going to spend more than that in a year, might be the USAA cash rewards card. This would be especially good if you are looking for something extremely reliable and backed by the best service around. It pays 1% cash back with absolutely no limit to the amount you can receive in rebates. It does require an annual fee of $29.

Farm Bureau Bank is new, but most likely a reliable and reputable source for credit, as its president used to be president of USAA's bank; USAA has the best reputation out of all the financial service providers in the country, according to American Banker magazine and a heap of anecdotal evidence.
