Plus, earn $100 back after you spend $2,000 in purchases on the card within the first six months of card membership. Cash back is received in the form of statement credits.

Cons

  • There is a $6,000 spending cap on the U.S. supermarket bonus category, which may not work for those with larger annual grocery spend
  • You’ll have to pay a 2.7% foreign transaction fee on purchases abroad, so it’s not a great choice to take with you when traveling outside of the U.S.
