Why does BofA offer 2% cashback at a Super Wal-mart but AMEX blue preferred doesn't
The Merchant Category Codes...MCC they obviously can't not change from the stores side but how you classify them can.....I was told a super wal-mart does not earn 6% cash back on the blue preferred card but on my BofA card it does earn 2% as a grocery category and I was wondering if the MCC is the same from the store is the same why it wouldn't earn 6% on your end as a grocery catergory

Contact AMEX

Though it is right that MCCs should follow a standard universal coding, there might be differences in the way AMEX recognizes super wal mart (i don't know why it should be, but there is always a possibility). Call AMEX and ask about this. They say you should get 6% from US based grocery stores, so it should work. Sometimes there is a glitch in the system and it doesn't recognize. Call, and they should be able to help.
