Deal Details

I've been checking this site occasionally to see what new credit card offers show up.

https://www.creditcards.com/cardmatch

Today I received an offer for, applied, and was approved for what is the best yet (non-targeted)
Quote :
Blue Cash Everyday offer:

$150 bonus cashback with $500 spend in 3 months
15 months of 0% purchase apr, then 12.99%

This card has no annual fee and 3% cashback on groceries (first $6000 annually - meaning a maximum of $180).
I also received the following
Quote :
Blue Cash Preferred offer:

$250 bonus cashback with $1000 spend in 3 months
15 months of 0% purchase apr

This card has a $75 annual fee (probably not waived first year), and 6% cashback on groceries (first $6000 annually - meaning a maximum of $360).
You can redeem reward dollars for statement credits in increments of $25 whenever your total available reward dollar balance is $25 or more.

Worth checking if you're interested in these offers:
https://www.creditcards.com/cardmatch
DO NOT enter SSN, just name and address.

You may need to click on the offer link multiple times, I keep getting "Amex cannot find the page you're looking for" or similar messages.

you don't want to get Everyday/Preferred ones? they should be under "EXCLUSIVE OFFERS (3)" tab.

It starts the day that they open up the account.

I thought I would use this card to buy gift cards at Kroger and get the 6% rebate. Then I could use the gift cards wherever but I think it's a no go. I got my card today and read all the "term & conditions". It says that prepaid cards or "cash equivalents" are not elgible for any rebate. It further says that retailers code these type of cards in order to flag them. I think I'll try a small purchase and see what happens.

Can someone with the card confirm or deny if gift cards at grocery stores do qualify for 6% cash back?

They do. Large reason why it's capped now at $6K a year. Many stores do not share the tier of information to Amex that shows item level data.

I hope you're right. Gift cards are the main reason I got this card.

Interesting... do you know if gift cards at Safeway or Lucky are OK to purchase and receive the AMEX rebate points?

Transactions post with a MCC code assigned to the charging merchant based upon the general type of goods they sell - the items you purchase on a particular transaction do not matter.

Safeway/Lucky etc. will always flag as "grocery", and you will qualify for the 6% no matter what you purchase. To make your gift card purchases less obvious, don't go and purchase ONLY gift cards in any one transaction - consistent transactions for $25, $50, $100 etc. - the typical gift card amounts - could raise a flag. Adding a gift card on to any normal grocery purchase will be fine, and you'll always get your cash back.

As stated before, the gift cards are why they capped the spending at $6k, but there's no way to tell what particular items you are purchasing.

800-221-4950 and give them the application reference number. You should have it in your email.

I got approved for 6k. Thanks OP

Gold is a charge card. No credit limit reported. Don't know about green.
