It sounds like Amazon Prime Day will happen in mid-June — or possibly sooner. Just in time for summer’s edition of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, American Express rolled out two welcome offers for its Blue Cash cards — and new cardholders can receive 20% back on Amazon purchases!

Blue Cash Welcome Offers

The Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express‘ current promotion boasts three special bonuses:

  • 20% cashback on Amazon purchases made within six months of being approved for the card. (See Rates & Fees.)
    • A maximum of $200 cashback applies.
  • A one-time $150 cashback bonus after spending $3,000 in eligible purchases within six months of card membership approval. (See Rates & Fees.)
  • The card’s $95 annual fee is waived the first year. (See Rates & Fees.)

Worth noting: earned the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express earned the “Best Card for Families” award on the CardRatings “Best Credit Cards of 2021” list.

Meanwhile, the no-annual-fee Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express offers:

  • 20% cashback on Amazon purchases made within six months of being approved for the card. (See Rates & Fees.)
    • A maximum of $200 cashback applies.
  • A one-time $100 cashback bonus after spending $2,000 in eligible purchases within six months of card membership approval. (See Rates & Fees.)

I love that both welcome offers give cardholders six months to reach the minimum spending requirements.

A Must-Have: The Blue Cash Preferred® Card

As far as I’m concerned, the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express is a must-have card because of its fantastic bonus cashback categories:

  • Earn 6% back on up to $6,000 spent at U.S. supermarkets annually
  • Earn 6% back on select U.S. streaming subscriptions (like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Spotify, Apple Music, and many others)
  • Earn 3% back at U.S. gas stations
  • Earn 3% back on transit purchases (think Lyft, Uber, parking, tolls, etc.)

My wife and I use our Blue Cash Preferred® card at supermarkets and for all of our streaming service subscriptions. The card’s $95 annual fee (See Rates & Fees.) is easily recouped. Everything after that is money in our pocket. The BCP easily saves us several hundred dollars a year.

We don’t yet know when these offers will expire. But these welcome offers are a great opportunity to help you save money.
