American Express is sending again some targeted upgrade offers by email to Blue Cash Everyday cardholders. The offer is to upgrade to Blue Cash Preferred and earn $250 cash back after you spend $2,000 within the first three months.
The Amex Blue Cash Preferred credit card comes with a $95 annual fee that is not waived, while the Blue Cash Everyday card has no fee. So take that into account.
Here’s the earning rates for the Amex Blue Cash Preferred credit card:
- 6% Cash Back at U.S. supermarkets up to $6,000 per year in purchases (then 1%);
- 3% Cash Back at U.S. gas stations;
- 3% Cash Back at select U.S. department stores; and
- 1% Cash Back on other purchases.
If you were targeted, it could be a nice bonus without a hard pull and better earning at supermarkets. You can even get this bonus if you have had the card in the past. After 12 months (to be safe), you can downgrade again. It’s possible to get the same upgrade offer in the future.
