You know that the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express offers 6% cash back at U.S supermarkets on up to $6,000, 1% thereafter. Even better news now because you can get an additional 2% cash back at Wholefoods with the new Amex promotion for a total of 8% cash back. This is only valid from October 15 til February 15, 2015 and your card must be enrolled. Only purchases made in store and online are valid for this promotion. They will post your reward dollars within 6-8 weeks after your purchase. If you have the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express instead, then the total cash back would be 5% with this promotion.
