I personally have never been a fan of points, I like cash as its good anywhere.

My cards (in order I like them)

Fidelity Amex 2% back
Fidelity Visa 1.5% back Used to have a marketplace you could get bonus point
Discover - had it 20 years seldom use is and the categories never align with my spending and they closed Shop Discover.

I have a Delta Amex (75$) purely for travel since the free luggage pays for the card.

I've been hard pressed to be 2% - yeah some places offer 5% on various categories but I (personally) feel its a mugs game to try to time it. I live alone no wife or kids. Perhaps with a family I've get better with grocery/Upromise/gas points). My thought is avoiding spending money is a good way to save that (for me) trumps rewards.
