Somewhere around there. I wouldn't worry about it that much.

Re: considering amex blue cash everyday need advice

There should be a link for $100 sign up bonus for BCE on creditcard.com.

Your change getting approve for BCE pretty high.

I approved for my BCE when my score around 675.

If you werent apply for anything like car or mortgate then give it a shot.

Maybe add 2 3 trade line if you want to build your credit in a long run.

I'm actually looking at the same cards and have decided on the BCE mainly because of the annual fee. I would assume that the requirements would be the same except that with the BCP, you are paying for the extra benefits. Which justifies the cost for some.

 

Keep us informed.

I think if the BCE appears worth getting, then for most the BCP is actually the better choice.

 

If you just buy groceries, the break-even point for BCE vs BCP is $2500 per year, about $50 per week.  However, you also get 1% extra on gas (and those select department stores).  So if you spend $100 per month on gas, you save an extra $12 (which is like reducing the annual fee oto $63), so the break-even point is then $42 per week on groceries.

 

And, if you spend less than that on groceries and gas, the BCE isn't going to save you much anyway, and you would be better off saving the app for a card which gives rewards where you do spend your money!

 

Of course, there can be good sign up bonus for the cards, which might make they worthwhile to get for that, even if the gas/grocery spend is small.
