Cooking is one of my passions, so it's natural that groceries top my list of monthly expenses. On average, I spend $325 per month on everything from milk and eggs to veggies and chocolate chips. These costs add up quickly, but I've found ways to make grocery shopping less costly.
The Blue Cash Preferred Card has been my go-to for grocery shopping since it earns a robust 6% cash back at U.S. supermarkets, on up to $6,000 per year in purchases (then 1%). Unfortunately I can't use it when I shop at Costco since they don't accept cards from all issuers. On Costco trips, I use one of my Visa-backed Chase cards, like the Chase Freedom® (no longer open to new applicants).
The Blue Cash Preferred Card's rewards rate is higher than any other card listed on Select's list of the best grocery rewards cards and earns me roughly $234 per year in cash back.
If my annual cash-back earnings aren't enough to convince you this card's a stellar choice, it currently has a welcome bonus of a $250 statement credit after you spend $3,000 in purchases on your new card within the first six months. This is a great way to offset your grocery bills. The Blue Cash Preferred has a $0 intro annual fee for the first year, then $95. (See rates and fees.)
If you're also someone who seems to have a never-ending grocery list, consider applying for this card.
