The offer for the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express and the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express is no longer available.

Amex just released a new welcome bonus for the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express that can earn you $200 back after you spend $1,000 in purchases within the first three months from account opening.

The previous bonus was worth up to $300, but required you to mainly spend at Amazon in order to benefit: 20% back on purchases at Amazon.com (up to $200 back) and $100 back after you spend $1,000 in purchases on your new card, all within your first six months from account opening.

While the new offer is worth less money, it's more ideal for consumers who don't shop at Amazon.

Beyond a generous welcome bonus, the Blue Cash Everyday card ranks as our best grocery rewards card with no annual fee. Cardholders earn 3% cash back at U.S. supermarkets (up to $6,000 per year in purchases, then 1%), 2% cash back at U.S. gas stations and select U.S. department stores and 1% cash back on other purchases. See rates and fees.

Who’s eligible for the Blue Cash Everyday card’s welcome bonus?

If you’ve never had the Blue Cash Everyday card, you may qualify for the welcome bonus. Here are the eligibility rules:

The welcome offer, intro APRs, and intro plan fees are not available to applicants who have or have had this card. We may also consider the number of American Express cards you have opened and closed as well as other factors in making a decision on your welcome offer, intro APRs, and intro plan fee eligibility.

So if you’ve ever had the Blue Cash Everyday card, you can’t earn the bonus. If you’ve never had the card, Amex still might consider how many American Express credit cards you have and other factors, which means the chance you can earn the welcome bonus is decided on a case-by-case basis.

Bottom line

The Blue Cash Everyday card is a great no-annual-fee choice for maximizing cash back at grocery stores, but if you want to earn more rewards consider the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express. There is a $0 introductory annual fee for the first year, then $95, but you'll earn double the amount of rewards on grocery shopping: 6% cash back at U.S. supermarkets on up to $6,000 per year in purchases (then 1%).
