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.

I'm interested in the 6% back on groceries for gift cards as well, that would more than justify the 75 fee, curious.

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.
What do you mean ? You can get 3% back on grocery stores ( gift cards ) anytime, no anual fee ... can you find a beter deal then that ?
The 6000 limit is saying "after you spend $6000, you won't get 3% you get 1%, but before $6000 you get 3%"

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.
Technically, the most restrictive interpretation of the rule is that the card has to be CLOSED for more than 90 days. Judging from some of the posts about the Plat card 75K offer a month ago, that's what some people have been getting... or not getting rather =/

Quote from TheOldinOut View Post :
Would be sweet if I can rack up gift cards at supermarkets for the 6%.
That used to be the point before the cap. After expenses, you could make ~5% CB cashing out via AP or Serve buying Visa GCs. When you ran into AP or Serve caps there you could make ~4.2% CB cashing out via Bluebird buying Visa GCs.

That and don't forget that fuel points (without multipliers) at certain stores stacked too. Personally I don't buy merchant GCs because even with 6% back, usually you can find that much of a discount at PJ or CP. If you stacked fuel points you could probably see more than 6% back esp with 4X fuelpoints promos at Kroger.

What is PJ and CP ? Are you referring to Pajamas and Coconut Powder ?

No it's only grocery, so only at places that sell only grocery, no Walmart, Target, etc. It only works at Safeway, QFC, etc ...

Your identity will be stolen now.

Does anyone know for the Blue Cash Everyday when do you get your reward dollars( cashback ) ? Is it after each bill statement or every 1 year after signup. Also if you have $71 in rewards dollars, can you redeem all $71 for statement credit or is it only in $25 Increments ( $50 statement credit + $21 left over )? I know that they might have changed it recently, if someone with recent knowledge could respond.
