Chase Freedom vs. Amex Open

Chase Freedom is offering 5% back this quarter on and gas.  Sounds great, but my SPG Small Business Amex (same cost as the personal version, but more rewards) offers me 5% back on plus SPG points all the time.  The Open Savings program gives me a 5% rebate (posts in a few days) on my spending at Office Max on purchases over $100.  Office Max sells gift cards for, eBay, and many other retailers.  I also earn SPG points like usual on my purchase. There is an Office Max a short walk from where I work, so its no trouble at all to grab some gift cards (and office supply stores are fun to wander around). Chase Freedom is not looking that great this quarter, but it picks up next quarter.
