the old Blue Cash card (Amex) still available

fyi to anyone interested......   If you go to the Amex's main website and then select "View all personal charge and credit cards" from the drop-down menu, the blue cash everyday should be the first card on the top.   Then, click on "View Quick Info".    This will reveal a link that reads: " Looking for an earlier version of the Blue Cash Card?"

 

Click the link and then you'll go directly to the page for the old Blue Cash card; the page is apparently still active and the card can still be applied for.

 

I have confirmed via chat and the 800 number (located on the old Blue Cash web page) that the card is still available .    However, none of the reps seem to know for how long availability will go on.  They can only confirm that it's for a limited time.

 

Anyways... just wanted to share... I know for some of us here that the $6500 yearly spend threshold is easy to meet and the unlimited 5%on gas,groceries,drugstores that you get after spending 6500 ...makes this card very lucrative

That's interesting. I had always thought that the old blue was an MR reward.

I just looked but don't see that link anywhere. But I just got the BCP card so I probably wouldn't qualify for it anyway.

 

EDIT: Looks like you need to be completely logged out in order for it to show up. I launched a Chrome Incognito browser session and found the link to the old blue:

https://www304.americanexpress.com/credit-card/blue-cash/25330

 

Kind of wish I got that instead of the new BCP.

If it is available, my guess is you are able to product change to it if you like.  I am the phone with them now to see if that is an option, I will report back shortly.

No!  Not so much a calculation, more "If I buy 40 VR a month on this card, will Amex get annoyed in a way that Citi doesn't?"    If MS is easy on this card, the initila say $97 loss (spending $6500 at 0.5% instead of 2%) is OK.

I dare not tread those waters. I'd be the dummy to get pinched the first time.
