Re: Two New Blue Cash American Express Cards!!!!!!!!!!!

On the "compare cards," there's a bonus for first time Preferred Cash holders for $100 cash back if they spend $500 in the first 60 days.  I'm not sure if upgrades qualify, but I've heard of CSRs giving the promos to cardholders who upgrade.

 

I'm definitely getting this card.  6% for groceries the next year with the $100 cash back is a no brainer.  Best deal I've seen in quite some time.

No $100 bonus if upgrading. It didn't show it when I compared the cards. I think I have to apply from scratch to get the bonus.

Re: Two New Blue Cash American Express Cards!!!!!!!!!!!

Whoa, 6% on groceries, all the time, no tiers??

 

Although the fee works sort of like a tier, in that you have to charge $1250 on groceries to pay off the $75. ($75 = 6% of $1,250.) But for a family that has high grocery bills, that might be just 2-3 months' worth of shopping. I don't eat out much, and I cook from scratch, so I live at the grocery store.

 

OK, now I know what to do with my plain-Jane Blue that I was getting ready to close!!

Re: Two New Blue Cash American Express Cards!!!!!!!!!!!

I called them to convert my Blue to Blue Cash Everyday Card this morning. She told me I was the first one to convert the card. I think they checked my account history before they upgraded. I don't buy enough groceries for the annual fee and I also have my Costco Amex and Simply Cash for gasoline purchases.

Congrats!

 

Ok, you've got to be listed on their site as "FIRST" person to ever upgrade to the new card. 

 

On the $75 fee, after the $100 bonus, can't you just down grade the next year if your spending doesn't commensurate with the extra benefits accrued by the fee?

No tiers, aside from the $75 fee.  But, if you spend $500 in the next 60 days, you get $100 cash back.  You have the card at 6% for the next year + net $25.  Next year, downgrade to the no fee card for 3% if your spending doesn't justify the fee, right?

I'm still not convinced to make the switch.

Re: Two New Blue Cash American Express Cards!!!!!!!!!!!
