I've been using BTC for a while now. I'm going BCH from here on out. I'm not an expert but I'm learning. I may have some very beginner questions along the way but I hope to help others where I live to get into BCH too. All thanks Bitcoin .com!
It great that you have learnt how good BCH is, the recent price rise has seen BTC tx fees rise high price again.
There really is a lot of neat stuff you can buy with bitcoins now, especially with BCH.
You can buy gift cards and often get a nice discount: https://giftcards.bitcoin.com/
Purse.io has always been a good, it allows bitcoin users to get up to 30% off anything sold on Amazon: https://purse.io/shop
There may also be stores locally that accept Bitcoin Cash (BCH) you don't know about yet, check the map here: https://marcocoino.bitcoin.com/

Please refer to this article regarding why Bitcoin.com believe BCH is bitcoin for a number of technical reasons: https://www.bitcoin.com/info/bitcoin-cash-is-bitcoin
We understand there are other viewpoints. These are politically motivated when presented without technical basis. At Bitcoin.com we focus on evidence-based principles. BCH is bitcoin because it is peer to peer electronic cash with an unbroken chain of transactions, including signatures, dating back to its 2009 genesis block —- as defined in the Bitcoin whitepaper. Bitcoin Core (BTC) ceased to be bitcoin when Blockstream and other actors deprecated peer to peer cash for the world as a feature.
Bitcoin.com has been transparent about this dating back to our PSA, first published before Segwit was activated.
