Chase Rewards Card Nerfed

The Chase Freedom card is now nerfed. Roz writes:

I got a letter from Chase yesterday that they were nerfing the Chase Freedom card (no more 3% on certain types of purchases, no more $50 bonus with $200 cashout, so it’s basically just a Discover card now).

Are there any good rewards card left? Or will we soon be looking back at rewards programs as a bygone artifact of the EZ-credit era? “Remember back in the day when credit card companies would pay people to buy stuff?” Nerf letter, inside.
