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.

We could not find a match with the credit bureau we use, based on the information you entered. This is not a reflection of your credit quality.

Entering your Social Security Number greatly increases your chances of finding a match, if you have not already done so.

No, thanks.

Hmm...I have an Amex Blue cash card and just got approved for this Blue Cash Preferred card...I wonder if I will still get the $250 bonus if I meet my requirements. Anyone have experience getting cashback with more than 1 Amex Blue Cash card? Thanks!

Do they have a member mall thing? Where you can earn additional points just by going through the website?
I think they used to have, but they for sure don't have one now.

Does anyone know when the annual fee is charged? If you cancel after a few months, are they going to charge you the fee to cancel or anything like that?

Yep - just be careful if you're trying to be cute and doing stuff that may get coded as cash equivalents in order to meet spend (aka funding brokerage account, bank account, etc) and get hit with fees.



$250 is about as high as I've seen this particular card.



Amex is generally pretty good if you SM them. But, as with past offers, you generally do not qualify for a bonus if you have a card in the same family, or have had one in the last 90 days. So groupings like charge family, zync/green/gold/plat, and biz/gold biz, and blue cash/blue cash express/blue cash preferred etc are problematic. Reps have been known to interpret the 90 day rule like you have, as in from last app, but there are plenty on FT that have been denied for same family too. This is definitely YMMV if you have another of the same credit family.



This all depends how the register is coded. It is even about which section the register is in. You just got to go in and test the various kinds with dummy purchases. At my local super walmart, self checkout no, regular checkout no, pharmacy yes, customer service desk no. Other people have reported similar situations with Target in terms of coding. I have not seen any reports about Costco ever reporting at 5-6% however.
Would be sweet if I can rack up gift cards at supermarkets for the 6%.

You can cancel within 1-2 billing cycles to get the fee refunded, but then you lose out on the cashback bonus.

$150 bonus cashback with $500 spend in 3 months for BCE

Is this a good offer? Or better deal existed before?

In your first statement. if you cancel before one year is up, they will refund prorated fees for the remaining months in the year.

Meaning that, if I currently have had the BCE for more than 90 days, I could close it, apply for the BCP, and get the bonus? Thanks.

The best sign up was for the Amex Gold Rewards card a few years ago. It was $400-500 and then there was a glitch for existing cardholders where points magically appeared and we were able to get another few hundred in Amex GCs Wink Plus, Amex special offers kick butt.

You still had the BCE card in the past 90 days. I rushed to applying the Preferred card and now am reading this part. I just sent Amex an email inquiring about this...I will have to cancel this card if they say Im not eligible for the new bonus even though they approved for the new card.

I have this card (the non preferred) and rarely ever use it. The 6500+ spend to get any decent cashback is a joke. I wouldn't bother with this, just my 2 cents.

I wanted to know if the 2% gas count on gas purchases at costco?


i want to know also
I also have a Blue Cash Everyday card. My most recent Costco gas purchases were both categorized as "Transportation-Fuel," so it should count toward extra gas rewards - my local Costco uses a different MCC code for the gas pumps than the warehouse itself.
