Not bad. And no annual fee the first year. With all the promos that kroger and tom thumb ran this year for visa/MC/Amex, it was easy to max out mine (the benefit)

Where do you see the first year free? I'm not seeing that on the site (although it is offering me $250 for a statement credit instead of $150...been thinking about upgrading my blue cash everyday card to this

As far as I can figure it, spending a little over 3k on groceries is the break even point when comparing the two (just for groceries since i primarily use my costco card for gas)
blue cash everyday 3% back
blue cash preferred 6% back but $95 yearly fee
spending $3200 on the blue cash everyday card you get $96 back
spending $3200 on the blue cash preferred card you get $192 back minus the $95 yearly fee = $97 back

The $150 or $250 signup bonus is really nice...first year free would be killer and would probably push me to sign up

looks like it's either or...I tried a new browser window and it gave me the $150 offer with first year free so if you have an account already, maybe they try to target the $250 offer and give the 150/first year free to new AMEX customers

ya, the incognito offer is ymmv. You can get this offer if you are a current amex customer, just can't have had this product in the past since each Amex offer is once per lifetime

No it wouldn't count, although they don't accept amex anymore so not a big deal.

Here is a reference from the amex site.

no annual fee the first year. Usually it's not waived the first year.

It makes more sense to use BCP it as your gas card, too. Lots of people trade to BCE before the renewal fee hits.

That's odd. I didn't pay a fee my first year of BCP.

Costco, Sam's, Walmart, Target... are not considered grocery with Amex. Though Walmart Neighborhood stores have counted.
