Some of the better deals I have came across is the chase perfect card, the chase cash plus and believe it or not, the discover platinum gas card. All give back handsomly and in some capacity.

Capital One claims they provide no-hassle services. I made a three week international business trip recently. I carry a business credit card and a personal credit card. I notified the company of my business credit card of my travel schedule and by the time my three week trip was winding down, I ran the balance to it's maximum. I was in the Moscow, Russia airport and on my last leg of this trip and decided to purchase some gifts for the family. Since the business card was max'ed out, I pulled out the Capital One card. The first time I used it oversea's, Capital One denyed the transaction. Not a second or third, but the first transaction. I ended up using my business credit card which was over the limit. I called Capital One upon my return. They contend that since I didn't call them in advance, I was out of luck. I called my business visa card, which is a Cabela's Visa, and they waived the fees for going over the limit. I've since cancelled my Capital One card. No hassel??
