It's probably the Official Credit Card of The Synchole. Use it at the grocery store, any pharmacy (regardless of whether you're buying drugs or a pouch of beef jerky), and gas stations. You get 5% cash back on all purchases from grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations. The cash back accumulates and once it gets over $50 you simply call them or click on the internet and they'll send you a check for the amount.

Of course, you'll have to pay the card off in full every month and make sure you don't charge more than you can afford, yadda yadda yadda, but it's pretty darn clear that you are more than mature and disciplined enough to do that.

Anyway, without changing any of your spending habits at all, you can shave a full 5% off your grocery and gas bills. Plus, if any cehcking/saving accounts of yours are interest bearing you get the float as well (charge it now, bill doesn't come due for another month or so). None of which will make you wealthy, but it's a quick way to get a little more blood out of your turnip.

Just beware. If some of the folks on the Credit Card board are correct, you will inevitably end up driving around in circles justto spend more on gas to get money back.

BTW, you will all be amazed to hear that cutting down from 65-70 to 55-60 on the highway saves a bunch of gas.
