5 / 5 - Excellent Card
By Stan McDoodle on March 1, 2016
Overall, i am more than pleased to say this is an excellent card. I have been using it for the past 4 months, and have nothing but good things to say about it. It came with 18mo of 0% financing which i used to put my vacation on it. In addition, when you spend certain thresholds within those initial months, you get 150 cash back! I use this card mainly for my grocery's and gas as those are the categories you get most of your return on. The interest rate on this card is also significantly lower than my Freedom card from Chase which is something i appreciate as well.
4 / 5 - Simple and easy

I really like the fact that there is no fee associated with this card, and the two top categories that I spend the most on, groceries and gas, automatically are set at a higher percentage than all other categories. I'm a single guy, so I don't go through a lot of money on groceries or gas, so I've never really gotten close to the dollar caps on those categories. I also like that everything else I put on the card still earns me 1% cash back. There's no guess work on getting the cash back, which is also nice. No gotchas that you aren't aware of. I usually just apply the cash to my card balance. The only reason I didn't give this a 5 was that if you have a family, the dollar limits on groceries and gas for the higher percentages could be tight. Otherwise, I think this is a great card.
5 / 5 - The best credit card

The American Express Blue Cash Everyday is one of my favorite credit cards to use because of its usefulness. The card pays 3% back on groceries, and 2% back on gas and 1% on everything else. This is great because my two biggest monthly expenses are gas and groceries, so having a credit card with a high cashback percentage in those categories is amazing. The card also has no annual fee so you never have to pay to use the card. It also comes with American Express’s excellent customer service and access the awesome money saving “amex offers.” To sum up, this card is a no brainer for anyone who spends a lot on groceries and gas and soon you see the cashback accumulate into large amounts!
