Best cash back card for groceries.
ImagoDeiGen126 Cardholder

Excellent cash back card.  I get 6% back from streaming services and at US Supermarkets(Kroger, Publix) (Not Superstores:Walmart, Target, etc...) and 3% back at non-superstore/supermarket gas stations.  The customer service has always been top notch.  Highly recommended!

Great Card
EddiePA Cardholder

I rarely carry a balance so the card pays for itself. I remember to use it for all grocery purchases and gas from standalone gas stations. BJs and Sams club you only get 1%. You can earl cash back rewards quickly by using it for as many purchases you can and making more than one payment a month. Customer Service is excellent. I got a new card in 2 days after fraud was detected. This is one of the best cards out there. Only downside is this card can't be used that much overseas. Most prefer visa or mastercard. And they charge a foreign exchange fee. I use another card instead.

I received this card on a Saturday, by Monday I charged $1000 on it. On Wednesday I checked my account only to see, the transaction posted and in the same instance it was credited $250. So my outstanding balance was effectively $750. How can you possibly have a bad word to say about this card, especially with all the bonus categories to earn 3% & 6% pure cash back. It's a must have, for me atleast. Please name one Chase card that comes within 100ft of this card? Nil!

Oct 11, 2019 raw cash back card out there! Perfect for my wife and I on every level! I earned $45 just in the last statement period alone, and I don't consider myself a huge spender by any means.

Great card!
ChargerGreg Cardholder

Great rewards/customer service/cash back/cash advance/ easily worth the paltry $95 annual fee. Like it better than my Platinum card for day to day use. Asked for a bump to $50K from $30K and all they needed was a docusign and a few electronic lines from the previous two 1040's. piece of cake!. waiting on another $10K approval (hopefully) regardlless, great card.

I've been an Amex card holder for many years now and the this card has proven its worth to me. They has exceptional customer service and I even added my spouse so that we can share the card's credit. There is a high annual fee, but if you utilize the card to its full potential then the fee ends up being paid for by its self. We use our card for for already budgeted items such as groceries and car fuel. Then we just pay it off in full monthly. This has worked wonderful for improving our credit scores. We use the Amex rewards we earn from getting our monthly necesities and we apply them directly into the cards Balance payment everyother month and that's how the card pays for itself. Again, Its a great card if you use it to its potential and I highly recommend it to others. Very relable and beneficial card.

Great card with great benefits.
ThatRebelComic Cardholder

Credit Karma noted that I was pre-approved for this card.  I had been looking for some time to find a card that had the sort of benefits I want, and this one fits the bill.  The application process was easy and my card arrived a couple of weeks later.  If I had one issue with the card issuance process, it would be the fact that it did not arrive as quickly as I had been led to believe, but on the whole, that's a minor issue.  My overall experiences have been nothing but good and I'm glad I applied.

Did you apply through CK or directly to Amex?

Great cash back rewards
Streetglide59 Cardholder

This is my go to card for every day purchases at grocery stores, paying for gas at the pump, cell phone and cable bill. The cash back rewards add up quick and like the flexibility on how you can spend the rewards. You can take a statement credit or use to purchase gift cards and of course the online shopping catalog. I pay my balance each month. I applied for the card in 2013 with a FICO of 720 and was approved with a $5,000 limit. In 6 months, they raised my limit to $11,500 and after 2 years they raised it to where it currently sits at $17,100. The application process was easy and was approved in a matter of seconds after the online submit. As always, American Express has awesome customer service and I would definitely recommend this card.

The FICO is the score that Credit Karma shows you?

Feb 03, 2019

Credit Karma uses Vantage not FICO; a wise consumer will track both.
