1. Cash Back Program
You will earn cash back only on eligible purchases and in the form of Blue Cash Reward Dollars (reward dollars). You can redeem reward dollars for statement credits with no minimum redemption amount. You cannot use cash back to pay your Minimum Due. The number of reward dollars you earn is based on a percentage of the dollar amount of your eligible purchases during each billing period.
Eligible purchases are purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases do NOT include fees or interest charges, balance transfers, cash advances, purchases of travelers checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents.
You will earn a reward of 3% on the first $6,000 of eligible purchases in a calendar year (then 1%) at supermarkets located in the U.S. (superstores, convenience stores, warehouse clubs, and meal-kit delivery services are not considered supermarkets); 3% on the first of $6,000 of U.S. online retail purchases (then 1%), 3% on the first $6,000 of purchases of gasoline at gas stations located in the U.S. (then 1%), (superstores, supermarkets and warehouse clubs that sell gasoline are not considered gas stations); 2% on eligible purchases at select department stores located in the U.S. through 10/31/22. (The current list of select major department stores at which you can receive a 2% reward is available at americanexpress.com/rewards-info); and 1% on all other eligible purchases. Additional terms apply.
To earn additional rewards on online retail purchases, the purchase must be made on a website or a digital application (an app) from a U.S. retail merchant that sells physical goods or merchandise directly to consumers. To identify eligible online retail purchases, we rely on information provided to us by the merchant. The following are not considered retail purchases: purchases made at restaurants, supermarkets, gasoline stations, or automotive dealers, as well as purchases of travel, entertainment, or other services. Payment must be made online and categorized as an internet transaction by the merchant for the purchase to be eligible. You will not receive additional rewards for purchases ordered online but paid for in store. Payments made in store using a mobile or digital wallet or a contactless payment device are not considered online purchases. You will not receive additional rewards for purchases made by phone or mail, or by using a third party "buy now pay later" installment program.
Merchants are assigned codes based on what they primarily sell. We group certain merchant codes into categories that are eligible for additional rewards. A purchase with a merchant will not earn additional rewards if the merchant's code is not included in a reward category. You may not receive additional rewards if we receive inaccurate information or are otherwise unable to identify your purchase as eligible for a reward category. For example, you may not receive additional rewards when: a merchant uses a third-party to sell their products or services; or a merchant uses a third-party to process or submit your transaction to us (e.g., using mobile or wireless card readers); or you choose to make a purchase using a third-party payment account or make a purchase using a mobile or digital wallet.

AMEX Blue for pretty much everything else
AMEX Platinum maybe for travel
Chase Sapphire Preferred for online food delivery
An Amex representative tells me the Blue Cash Everyday’s online retail category is very broadly defined. “There’s no specific list of qualifying merchants,” the Amex rep says. “It only does not apply to purchases made in store or to services bought online, like travel bookings or online food delivery. But from pet supplies to the latest kitchen gadget to new shoes, and almost everything in between, Card Members will get rewarded with 3% cash back when they shop online, on up to $6,000 per year.”
If you want 3% Paypal (with no $6000 cap) there is a Paypal card with 2% everything and 3% Paypal with no fee.
