I HAVE HAVE RUN ALL OF MY PURCHASES THROUH A CREDIT CARD. I GOT MY FIRST CREDIT CARD IN 1987. DISCOVER OFFERD A 1% REBATE.
SO HERE ARE THE NUMBERS

1987 TO 2013 = 26 YEARS
1987 TO 2013 = 312 MONTHS
3000 = AVERAGED MONTLY CHARGES
936,000 = TOTAL AMOUNT CHARGED
9,360 = REBATE DOLLARS
125 = INTEREST PAID ON CREDIT CARD CHARGES OVER THE LAST 26 YEARS.

SO I HAVE ALWAYS FOLLOWED CC REBATES. MY BEST CURRENT RECOMMENDATION IS AMAZON'S CARD HANDLED BY CHASE. THESE ARE THE REBATES AND COSTS:
Earn 3 points for every $1 spent at Amazon.com
Earn 2 points for every eligible $1 spent at gas stations, restaurants, and drugstores†
Earn 1 point for every other $1 spent†
Points don't expire, and there is no limit to the number of points you can earn
No annual fee
