Blue Cash PreferredThe Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express is now offering a $100 statement credit after spending $1,000 within the first 3 months of Cardmembership and 1 year of Amazon Prime. Cardholders earn 6% cash back at U.S supermarkets(up to $6,000), 3% cash back at U.S gas stations and department stores, and 1% cash back on all other eligible purchases. However, the Blue Cash Preferred comes with a $75 annual fee. With the 6% reward rate on qualifying groceries, a family really only needs to spend $25 a week on groceries to make up for the annual fee. It offers a 0% intro APR on purchases and balance transfers for 15 months. After that, your APR will be a variable rate, currently 12.99%-21.99%, based on credit worthiness and other factors. Unlike the Chase Freedom or Discover More, there is no rotating reward categories and no enrollment required.

Blue Cash Preferred Card Features:

  • Get one year of Amazon Prime plus $100 back after you make $1,000 in purchases with your new Card in the first three months.
  • You will receive $100 back in the form of a statement credit.
  • Hassle-free cash back: no enrollment required, the same great reward categories year-round.
  • Earn Cash Back: 6% US supermarkets up to $6,000 per year in purchases, 3% US gas stations & select US dept stores, 1% on other purchases. Terms and limitations apply.
  • Cash back is received in the form of Reward Dollars that can be redeemed as a statement credit.
  • 0% intro APR on purchases and balance transfers for 15 months, then a variable rate, currently 12.99% to 21.99%, based on your creditworthiness and other factors.
  • Terms and limitations apply.
