Not only are gas prices going up, groceries are too. This is something that everyone is dealing with on a daily basis, including me. We can’t do much about the prices going up, however we can take other actions to help put money back into our pockets.
The Blue Cash Card and the Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express will reward you for your purchases with up to 6% cash back and make shopping a little more fun!
Here are some of the great offerings of the American Express Blue Cash Card:
– Unlimited Cash Back from all of your purchases : up to 6% at supermarkets, 3% at gas stations & department stores and 1% on all other purchases
– Redeem your rewards when you have reached $25 or more, earn gift cards for a variety of stores and restaurants, or even use your cash back for products such as electronics, fashion and sports equipment
– Happy Returns! If you try to return an eligible item within 90 days from the date of purchase and the merchant will not take it back, American Express may refund the full purchase price back!
– Tell your friends about the Blue Cash rewards program and you will earn $75 for each friend approved
I took a look at my spending in gas and groceries alone to see what I could be earning.
After looking at my bills over the last couple of months I’m finding that a cash back rewards program could really be helpful.
On average I spend $600 a month for groceries with a family of 4, luckily I stay at home with my children so gas expenses are only around $150 a month.
With the calculations of our monthly grocery bill and gas expenses I could be earning $486 Cash Back Annually with the Blue Cash Preferred Card or $252 Cash Back Annually with the Blue Cash Everyday Card.
Even with the Blue Cash Everyday Card the amount of my rewards is almost half of my monthly grocery budget!
How about you? Do you use a Cash Back rewards program?
