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. This card also offers a 0% introductory APR for 12 months on purchases and balance transfers.

Look Out For

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

No Complaints!!
ModernLove Cardholder

I received this card on January 4, 2016, so I thought I would post an update. At the time CK had my approval chances at 'poor', yes....poor. But I logged onto AmEx and checked for pre-qualified offers and this card popped up. My Experian was 671 (they pull Experian) and I was approved in seconds with a 1K credit limit. After receiving the card in the mail I called and requested a credit lmit increase and was instantly bumped up to 3K. So far the card has been fantastic. I have no complaints. I use it almost daily and I have been racking up the rewards points. Customer service has been stellar, (both on the phone and webchat)!! I thought I received the 'spend 1K in 3 months and get 10K Membership Points' deal, but after calling I was informed I got the 'spend 2K in 3 months and get 20K Membership Points' deal. Woo-hoo!! I've already spent $1500, so another $500 by April 4th will be no problem at all! Looking forward to getting those 20K Membership Points (a round trip flight from Chicago to Colorado is only around 5K points). I make big payments on this card every payday, so my utilization remains low despite the heavy use. The reason I decided to provide an update is because AmEx FINALLY reported to the credit bureaus just this takes them awhile. I've only been to one place that did not take AmEx, a mom and pop breakfast place. I highly recommend this card. If I can get an AmEx (started with a 528 FICO) you can too. Good luck!!

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!!!

It's getable!
holdenoak Cardholder

I started rebuilding my credit about 4 years ago. I have all the other cards, limits range from 5k to 300. My credit scores are only 647 TU, 647 EQ and 670 EXP. They approved me for this one and the Blue Cash one. Only $1000 limit but its higher than my others started at. My approval odd was only fair. Give it a shot!

Overall great card
StarDustSkies Cardholder

This is my lowest apr card out of 5 different cards with 5 different banks. The customer service is always great. The rewards are ok. It takes awhile to accumulate enough points to redeem and their rewards aren't that great. I will probably end up converting to their cash back card.

I went for it
JayR07 Cardholder

Well I just applied for the card yesterday 2/11/17. I was approved for a 2k cl. I have "fair" credit based off of ck criteria (673 & 678) and "good" with experian (674). I have been rebuilding my credit for the past year and a half. I currently have capital one quicksilver one, secured card, and the gm card. Limits of 750, 700, and 300. Basically I applied just to see if I would get approved and if I were it would probably the lowest of $500. CK said I had a fair chance. Now one thing that I will say that I found out is that the bonus offers differ from person to person. I went onto amex website to try the pre-qualify tool and it came back with both everyday cards. However the pre-qualify offers did not have the 0% interest for 12 months or 10,000 points. So I decided to to do an online chat (very helpful) and they told me that the bonus is something they offer but everyone does not qualify for it and to make sure you read your terms. Although I was a little disappointed I'm and just more happy that I was approved. It says that I will get a limit increase after 5 months of having a balance and paying at least the minimum. I will do an update then.

Reviews were ok so I applied
Tonii2017 Cardholder

I haven't gotten the card in the mail yet but I did apply for the card on Super Bowl Sunday. On credit karma it said my approval chance was very good but I still was very nervous because it a large company card. I have three other cards two was capital one limits are 3500 and 600 and a secure card of 300. I was a victim of identity theft so I wasn't sure if I was going to get approved I also have a credit score in the 660-680 range so of course I was never but I applied anyway. They asked a few questions but the whole process took about 5 minutes and I was approved with a credit limit of  $10,000. I didn't have to call in and compete the application it was all online.
