Overview

The Blue Cash Everyday Card from Amex is best suited for you if you prefer cash-back rewards over travel rewards. This card may be a good fit if you aren’t willing to pay an annual fee or you won’t spend more than several hundred dollars on your card each month. The Blue Cash Everyday Card from Amex’s current welcome offer is up to $250. Earn 20% back as a statement credit on purchases when you use your new card to check out with PayPal at merchants in the first six months of card membership, up to $150 back. Plus, earn $100 back as a statement credit after you spend $2,000 in purchases on your new card in the first six months of card membership.

Pros

  • 3% cash back at U.S. supermarkets (up to $6,000 in purchases per calendar year; then 1%)
  • 3% cash back at U.S. gas stations and U.S. online retail purchases (up to $6,000 in purchases per calendar year; then 1%)
  • Access to Amex Offers (enrollment required), which earn you statement credits or extra points on purchases with a wide variety of merchants

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.
