Which FICO score? The one used for credit cards, the one used for car loans, the one used for mortgages, or a completely different one?

The one that airlines use to assign seat upgrades.

Hooray! I've got a Discover card.

I get advertisements for Discovery Cards all the time. They always come with 25-40% interest on them as opposed to the <5% I currently have. I yet to see why I would go with a card that works in far less places with insulting interest rates and horrible terms and conditions.

Discover gives you the option for a direct deposit into your checking/savings account if you want it. Same as paper money to me.

Plus 1-5% cash back is better than anything else I've come across yet.

Don't carry over a balance. Problem solved.  Then use it to get cash back on all of your purchases.

Also, I haven't been anywhere in the last 5 years that hasn't taken Discover. Maybe you're traveling abroad a lot or something? Then that might be the case. Otherwise it's a problem they seem to have solved.

Haw.
A friend of mine owed Discover like 12K.
Transfered the balance to a Citicard and closed the Discover account. Had quite the argument with the Discover phone minion when he told them to close the card. Had to keep ordering them to do it, over and over again, several phone people, too.

/Fark credit cards forever.

1% is... good. Better than a kick in the seat, I guess.  1.5-2% deals are out there again.

I'm kinda bad about the cashback-whoring.  What we carry:

Amex Blue Cash Preferred: 6%(!) at grocery (and my liquor store rings up as a grocer!), 3% on gas.  This one has a $75 annual fee, but I buy enough groceries and gas to be worth it.  There is a no-fee version at 3% grocery/2% gas

Discover: 5% quarterly categories and using the ShopDiscover sites.  When I need something like an appliance, I'll go to ShopDiscover, order it for store pickup from Best Buy or Home Despot, and get 5%.

Fidelity Invest Rewards Amex: 2% anywhere else.

and a backup Visa, just in case.
