Card Overview

The Amex Blue Cash Preferred is the highest earner for grocery spending. Even after deducting the annual fee you will still be left over with a 4% earning on US grocery spending. Plus, you will earn 3% cash back on purchases at US gas stations and transit as well. It is also the Amex card with the cheapest annual fee ($95), which now gets waived the first year, that comes with the 90-day return protection benefit (one of my personal favorite credit card benefits). The intro 0% APR on purchases helps with cash flow. Shop with confidence with more Amex benefits like purchase protection, extended warranty protection and more.

Card-Smart Tips & Advice
  • Good credit needed
  • In a time span of 90 days, you can only get approved for 2 Amex cards.
  • You can only get approved for up to - and including- 5 Amex credit cards (including personal and business), but this rule isn’t always enforced (please note the total of 5 credit cards excludes some Amex cards that are No Preset Spending Limit* cards like the Amex Platinum, Amex Gold, etc)
  • Amex will usually pull your Experian credit report
  • Credit inquiries for same-day applications will be combined, as long as they are both approved for on the same day. Note, for some existing Amex credit cardholders, Amex will not do a hard credit pull when applying for a new credit card at any time
  • You can check your application status  here  or call 1 800 567 1083
  • If declined you can call 1 800 567 1083 to be reconsidered
  • The Amex Blue Cash Preferred can be downgraded to the Amex Blue Cash ($0). Please note, it is not recommended to downgrade an Amex card before 12 months of account opening.
