Our Take

The Amex EveryDay® Credit Card from American Express has plenty of rewards-earning potential.

What to Like

The Amex EveryDay® Credit Card from American Express is a great card for accumulating rewards on everyday purchases. Cardholders can get 2x points at U.S. supermarkets on up to $6,000 per year in purchases (then 1x), along with a one-time bonus of 10,000 points after spending $1,000 on eligible purchases in the first three months of membership. 

Look Out For

This card has a penalty APR that applies for at least six months after a late payment, so it’s important to stay on-time with your payments.

I am shocked that I even got approved
Anonymous Cardholder

Credit Karma recommended this card to me and I thought to myself "Amex would never extend credit to me" but I was wrong. In 2010 I lost my job, depleted my savings, and destroyed my credit. However, now I have a good paying job, emergency savings up to 6 months, and I have somewhat recovered from my credit mess. My Experian is at a 634 FICO, Equifax is at 622 FICO, and Transunion is also 634 FICO (these are actual FICO scores not the estimates you get from Credit Karma). My credit consists of a paid judgement, 4 unpaid collections from 2010 (due to fall off this year), 3 chargeoff accounts from 2010, 6 credit cards in good standing and over 2 years old average, 4 paid unsecured loans in good standing, 1 open auto loan in good standing, 2 student loans currently in good standing but delinquent in 2010, 20 credit inquiries almost 2 years old now (yes 20...I know I know), 2 turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree......As you can see, my credit is not all that great and I expected to get a denial or a message saying they would review my application and get back to me within 7 to 10 days, but instead I got an instant approval. I was only approved for a $1,000 credit line and $750.00 balance transfer but, as promised, the card came with 0% purchases and balance transfers for 1 year. So if you think your score is too low and your credit might be too crappy for Amex to approve you, compare it to mine and try it. 

Other points I didn't mention above are:

- Total credit limit on all currently open cards: $15,000

- Total balance on all open cards: $1,050

- Auto loan original balance: $12,653 | Current balance: $7234

- Student loan original balances: 1) $3,500 and 2) $2,000 | Current balance: 1) $1,200 and 2) $500

- Annual income $50,000

- Average age of accounts 3 years

- Total age of credit history 8 years

So far no complaints. Hope this helps.

Great Card. But...
hawthorneboi Cardholder

I applied for the card about 4 months ago just to take advantage of the perks it "comes" with. Sign up bonus. Met. Did I get it. Nope. 0% apr on purchases and balance transfers for the first 12 months was a pretty **** good perk as well plus the fact that it was AE a very well respected card player. I am happy with the card but not happy with being swindled out of the perks (sad deal) maybe my credit was not quite good enough to push me over the hump. Ill be optimistic keep the card, make my payments on time and sit back and hope that one day soon an AE represenative reads this and reaches out to me ;-) . Not only reach out to me but get me my **** perks they promised!!!

Credit karma said my odds were "good" compared to the "very good" on the Amex bce. Got 10,000 with a 734! The bce card only gave me 500??????? Either way I love American Express

You can always call them and have them readjust your credit limit on the BCE and move some of the limit to your Amex Everyday.

American Express is great
aboaz628 Cardholder

I applied for this card 2 weeks after applying and being approved for the Amex Blue Card. I waited the mandatory 5 days, and was just approved for the everyday card as well. They check Experian, which is currently at 690, 0% utilization, and 90K income. American express is the way to go, if you are weary of your chances, call the applicaiton number, and they are happy to help and usually work with you to get it approved. Very happy to have 2 Amex cards in my wallet, will no longer need any others.

Mzvirg0 Cardholder

Ck said my odds for this card were very good. Applied and was instantly approved for a $1600 cl. Expected more but that works for me. I also have the Amex plenti card and my cl started at $3000 so to hold 3 Amex cards is a plus for me. TU 690, EF 735

Approved, but Not Instantly.
PatmanBegins Cardholder

CK rated this as a Good chance for approval. My scores were ranged in the high 600s, very close to 700 mark. I have 3 small medical collection, under $3k total. 2 CC accounts; CapOne and BofA. 100% On time payment, and 7% Utilization. Income is 40K. I applied, did not get approved instantly. Said that I'll be notified. Within an hour, I got an email saying I was approved for 1k. Good enough for me. Happy to get my foot in the door with Amex.

Got this and blue cash everyday
snhay3 Cardholder

Applied for blue cash everyday card with "good" odds. 637 tu/640 eq via ck. 80k income. Was approved for $1000. Decent enough as I'm rebuilding credit. Applied for amex everyday 3 days later (found you need to wait at least 5) with "fair" odds and was approved for $5000. Glad for the opportunity to responsibly use their product as Amex is a large player. They use experian and I'm not sure of my score there. Hope for this to be a long relationship. Received blue cash card and waiting on everyday card. Would like to take advantage of initial rewards offered.

Go online at and you can move your credit limit over to your blue cash if you wish that's what I did

Mar 20, 2017

Sweet. I may do that when I receive the card and spend my 1k sign up bonus for 3 months. Would I get 2 with 5k limit or just the one.

I love this credit card
Anonymous Cardholder

Out of 5 other credit cards this is the only one I have had no problems with , I pay on time every month and I like how the amount I pay every month is available immediately on the card, with my other cards I have to wait sometimes 2-3 days for the payment to process. They approved me immediately with a 1k limit  with a 640 score ,they have not increased it yet but I am guessing they will eventually.
