Blue Cash Everyday from American Express Review

One of the oldest and most respected credit cards every to grace consumers wallets was the Blue Cash from American Express.  However, as the times changed, consumers also changed and even though the Blue Cash was a great card, it had too many flaws.  For example, cash back could only be obtained once a year in the form of a check and for true savers, this was unacceptable.  American Express heard their customers concerns, and recently launched the Blue Cash Everyday® from American Express, a card focused on everyday spending.

Instead of increased rewards only after a certain amount is spent each year, the Blue Cash Everyday from American Express offers a tier level of rewards, benefiting those who you the card as much as possible.  Current cash back rewards are as follows:

  • 3% cash back at U.S. stand-alone supermarkets (up to $6,000)
  • 2% cash back on gasoline at U.S. stand-alone gas stations and select major department stores
  • 1% cash back on other purchases

The amount of cash back that can be earned from any of the categories above is unlimited and cash back never expires.  With this card, you can redeem your rewards anytime you have at least $25 in rewards, allowing you cash back nearly anytime you want it.

Cardholders of the Blue Cash Everyday® from American Express will also receive a 0% intro APR on purchases for 12 months, depending on credit history.  Once that rate expires, the standard purchase APR becomes 12.99% – 21.99% variable, and the rate you’ll receive is again dependent on your credit.  Only excellent credit will be considered for approval but there are varying degrees of what American Express considers excellent.  A couple of quick extra features to mention about the Blue Cash Everyday from American Express are that this card includes no annual fee and if you refer a friend to sign-up, you’ll receive a $25 statement credit.

American Express has done an excellent job in providing an update to a credit card classic, you can even earn a whopping $100 cash back bonus after spending $1,000 in eligible purchases in the first 3 months of membership.
