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.

It may be hard to find someone to answer that since these are both recent products. The application does say this, however:
Quote :
Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months or any other Consumer Blue Cash® Card account within the last 90 days.
Implying you are eligible for the bonus if you opened the BCE more than 90 days ago. It doesn't specify that you need to close your other open card, so you should receive it if you're approved, IMO, but perhaps you should secure message AMEX before applying.

Awesome! Thanks OP. Thumbs up and repped! Got approved for the 150 after 500. Looks like a great card, glad to jump back on Amex after i dropped the Gold card due to annual fee.

no, costco gas is not 3% on regular amex cards. All warehouse purchases are normal cashback rate of 1% i guess

No, any amount over $6,000 annually will get only 1%.
Incorrect, the $6000 cap was instituted this year on groceries alone. You still get unlimited 3% cash back on gas and department stores. 1% on everything else. This card was better last year, but last year only had a $150 sign up bonus.

doesn't say that its waived anywhere, if you apply over the phone you could probably get them to promise it though. worse case scenario you just say "i was told the fee would be waived" and they'll probably do it

I have 1 BCE. Can I apply for another BCE (not BCP), and use 2 cards in the same time? As I know, Discover accepts this way.
