Many Americans have changed their spending habits during the pandemic, canceling travel plans while stocking up on groceries and ordering takeout. And your credit card issuer has taken notice.

Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, credit card issuers have been rethinking and adapting their rewards programs and perks to suit their customers' evolving needs. Popular luxury and travel rewards cards that usually offer primarily airline and hotel perks have updated their programs to include limited-time bonus rewards on groceries, takeout and streaming subscriptions.

Below, Select reviews the limited-time benefit changes for over a dozen credit cards from American Express, Capital One, Chase and Citi. We listed them by card issuer, so you can easily see if one or more of your cards has new perks.

However, if you don't have any of the cards mentioned below and want to earn rewards on grocery, takeout and streaming purchases, check out our roundups of the best cards for groceries, food delivery or streaming services.

This list is updated on a regular basis.

American Express

Amex has provided the most extensive updates with a variety of new perks geared toward grocery, food delivery, streaming and wireless categories across 11 of its premium cards. See below for a breakdown of the new perks, organized by shopping category and Amex card.

New bonus grocery rewards

  • Delta SkyMiles® Blue, Gold, Platinum and Reserve Cards: Earn 4X miles at U.S. supermarkets from May through July 2020.

Chase

On May 28, 2020, Chase announced several new changes for Sapphire cards:

  • New Pay Yourself Back feature maximizes the value of your Ultimate Rewards® points: When you redeem points for statement credits on purchases at grocery stores, dining (including restaurants, takeout and eligible delivery services) and home improvement stores, such as Home Depot and Lowes, points receive 50% (Chase Sapphire Reserve®) or 25% (Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card) more value. Simply choose an eligible purchase you made in the past 90 days, apply points for all or part of the purchase and you'll get a statement credit. Valid now through April 30, 2021.
  • Chase Sapphire Reserve® cardholders also benefit from more flexibility with their annual $300 travel credit: Gas station and grocery store purchases will now count toward earning your travel credit from June 1 through December 31, 2020.

These new updates expand on the changes Chase made in early May, when Chase introduced bonus rewards on groceries for the majority of its credit cards, including the popular Sapphire cards and most co-branded cards. Eligible cardholders can benefit from earning 3X or 5X points/miles per dollar spent on groceries with a maximum of $1,500 in eligible purchases through June 30, 2020.

Here's a breakdown of the rewards you can earn on grocery shopping:

Citi

Similar to how Amex changed its annual hotel benefit on select cards, Citi made temporary changes to the Citi Prestige® Card's annual $250 travel credit. Previously, this credit only applied to travel purchases, such as airfare and hotels, but now cardholders can receive a credit up to $250 for eligible purchases at supermarkets and restaurants through December 31, 2020.

In addition to travel credit changes, Prestige cardholders can earn 5X ThankYou points on all online purchases up to 7,500 points, through August 31, 2020. Eligible purchases include online grocery orders, online drugstore orders and retailer website orders.

Citi also made changes to the Citi Premier® Card's rewards program. Cardholders take advantage of new rewards rates that were expedited to June 2, 2020 (from Aug. 23, 2020):

  • 3X ThankYou points per $1 spent at restaurants (previously 2X)
  • 3X ThankYou points per $1 spent at supermarkets (previously 1X)
