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:

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.

For those that can see their rewards for the BCE/BCP, does Amazon.com count as a department store that receives 3% cash back? When you buy directly from Amazon.com, AMEX labels it as as a Department Store...but I can't seem to find any information on whether this will get counted into the 3% or not...

Amazon counts as 1 percent not 3 percent.


You can apply for the Amazon Visa and get 3 percent and $50 sign up bonus

Anyone know off hand what the break even point is on the Blue Cash $75 annual fee one? I think if my math is correct, you spend ~$1300 to cover cost of annual fee and after that all gravy? Of course I using all grocery to get this and I'm not including bonus.

The key thing is to buy gift card like Bestbuy, Amazon, subways from the grocery store like Kroger. You can easily get the $75 back.

Got my $150 bonus, redeemed as statement credit and reduced the balance for my first statement = Awesome!
Are you sure? Redeeming cash back for statement credits have always reduced my next bill, not the current.

I was expecting the credit for my next bill, but the credit came early, this would be YMMV.

I just got an offer in the mail yesterday for $250 cashback with the Blue Cash Everyday Card after $1000 spent in 3 months. Just signed up and got approved. Huge YMMV, but worth checking the mail.

This was for the no annual fee card, btw.

Has anybody had any luck waiving / getting a statement credit / or getting a credit in the amount of points for the cost of the annual fee for the first year? I understand we are still making money on this offer so I will probably go for it regardless.

Amex doesn't make exceptions for the Preferred card fee. If they did, 1,000,000 people would be calling every year for a credit.

Your best bet is to try to get the Everyday card with $250 cash back, no fee

That is very interesting.
I will just be patient and wait for a $260 bonus with no annual fee.

I try to hold out for at least $250-300 cash bonus to establish a new card,
and have been surprised that many cards easily yielded 400+....

edit:
This made me curious, I signd in to my AX account,
I know they have really been flogging cards there when I pay my bill....
But I see NO cash bonuses via the card management site..

Are you sure? Non-marketplace orders appear to be classified as Dept. Store for me.

All,

For those who applied before the $250 offer, but around the time of the start....

I applied January 30th and had to have the application reviewed for an incorrect collection account on my credit file. Anyways, it was finally resubmitted and approved a few days ago. Although I said I signed up for the $250 promotion, they said they saw a screenshot of my application only showing $150 (they're smarter than I thought). Anyways, I requested the $100 difference in a credit and they actually credited me $75 on my first statement in addition to the $150.

While this is extremely YMMV, if you call them, they may be willing to add a statement credit. Please note - they cannot waive the annual fee (asked and was rebuked as they cannot just waive it) and cannot change the promotion when you apply. However, they can issue credits to the account.

Good luck!!
What is the number you called? is it a separate department or just called the customer service number on the back of your card?
Thanks.
