Opportunity is knocking again if you didn’t take advantage of the Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express’ great welcome offer last fall.
The card is once again offering a $300 cash back bonus after spending $3000 in eligible purchases within six months of being approved. Plus, the $95 annual fee is waived the first year. (It earned the “Best Card for Families” award on the CardRatings “Best Credit Cards of 2021” list.)
My wife and I use the Blue Cash Preferred for a chunk of our grocery shopping. The card earns 6% cash back at US supermarkets (capped at $6,000 in annual spending). That right there earns us $265 cashback after the annual fee.
Plus, all of our streaming subscriptions go on the BCP because it awards 6% back on select US streaming services. And there are a ton of eligible streaming companies. (See a list of them here.) And the benefit isn’t limited to just TV streaming companies: providers such as Kindle Unlimted, Apple Music, and Pandora are also eligible!
See how this can easily make you a decent amount of money back every year?
We don’t yet know when the promotion expires.
We absolutely love the Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express. It’s a great complement to our Amex Membership Rewards cards that award travel and dining purchases. And many of us need to watch our finances right now — and this Blue Cash Preferred is a nice way to help that effort.
