Yup...I think that's exactly right so paying by CC is better provided you have the discipline. I fill up my gas tank for 50 bucks and I get $2.5 cashback at the end of the month and I have the cash for that particular purchase sitting in a MM account @6% for upto 60 days until the bill comes due so it's important to pay close attention to the grace periods and billing cycles and such....and theres no blackout dates for cashback.
