Hi Fools,
I've looked through the TMF's credit card picks, and I have some questions and requirements that aren't clearly covered in my research. I am hoping someone in a similar situation can suggest the best card for my purpose.

First, I currently have no credit cards at all. I have been paying cash for everything for decades. My FICO is over 700.

However, I recently went to work for a company and now have to charge and file expense reports, so I want a dedicated card to make this easier and stop using my cash, while possibly earning rewards or cash back. My expenses can run $500-$1,000 per month.

The ideal card should:

Permit auto pay from my checking to ensure no interest charges.
Offer generous cash back, with low or no annual fee, since I will have to cover that.
Possibly extra rewards focused on dining, hotel, airline purchases, since they are the focus of expenses.

Any other advice or specific card suggestions welcomed. Thank you.
