re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - HawkeyePierce
Depends on how the transaction is coded, but if I had to guess it would not be. Since it's a transaction with a vendor or independent consultant, I think that it would probably be best to look at something that was a cash back card at around 1.5 or 2%. There are a couple out there. I think UPS...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - HawkeyePierce
Agree with the poster above, two major "currencies" to go after: Membership Rewards (Amex) and Ultimate Rewards (Chase). There are others like Citi Thank You Points, but I think the transfer partners are better with MR and UR. There's a thousand sites on the google you can find for optimal card...
