Will I benefit more from a Cash Back or Rewards program? I do not want to only have choices to get a bunch of crap on the rewards program.

Major card issuers have raised the cash back percentage up to 5%. The 5% cash back rate usually applies only to purchases made at grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations for 6 months. This high rate of cash back was set to grab the attention of potential applicants for them to consider applying for the card. Typically the cash back rate for all other purchases is around 1%.
