Merchants have to pay hefty fees on credit card transactions. Buying a $20,000 car on a card would give them hundreds of dollars of fees. They don't want that.

As for cash rebate cards, I get 3% cash back on gas, groceries, and the like and 1% on everything else with my Chase card. I get a check every couple of months and spend the money as I wish. I think it's a much better deal than the GM card.
