I have a BofA Visa and Citi MC that are essentially sock drawered, Nordstrom store card, and CSP which is now my main card.

 

Depending on how motivated I am to cook, I spend $200-300 on groceries.

 

I mainly want an AmEx because I just got a Costco membership but I never have cash on me.


Another option i would think about is the Amex Costco card, its not too shabby. you get 3% on gas 2 % on restaurants and 1% on everything else i believe. Correct me if i am wrong its the only amex card that can get you 1% at costco ?


I though you can pay at Costco with any Amex card and get cashback?


Amex BCE $17,600 | CSP $6,200 | PayPal Extras MC $3,000 | Discover $3,000 | BofA $3,000

I assume you get whatever rewards your Amex card has at Costco. So if you use bcp, you get 1% cash back. However, if you use at Costco gas, bcp will only give you 1%. Amex Costco only card that will give you more than 1% at Costco gasoline.

Re: Shot at Amex BCE?

Spend at least $210 a month in groceries and the BCP pays for itself! Any gas spending or department stores over that amount just improves that cash back. I am single and went with the BCP and I'm happy I did! Although I also use it for gift cards from time to time Smiley Wink

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $32,000, Chase Freedom (12/12) $16,500, Citi Forward (12/12) $14,600, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Thank You Premier (6/15) $6,800

Re: Shot at Amex BCE?

Thanks everyone!  As tempting as it is to get it now, I just got the CSP a few months ago so I don't want to pull the trigger quite yet.  It'll also give me some time to evaluate my grocery spending (which has been low lately to the dismay of my husband) to see if I should get the BCP.  I'm hesitant just because the CSP has an AF too, but I suppose if I spend enough it will be worth it.
