The Amex EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card is one of the most powerful cards for earning full value Membership Rewards points.
Should you go for this?
The Amex EveryDay® Credit Card from American Express gives you 2x points at US supermarkets, on up to $6,000 per year in purchases (then 1x), 1x points on other purchases. There is a $0 annual fee.
And if you use the card 20 or more times in a billing cycle you get a 20% boost to all the points you earn that cycle, even the 2x at supermarkets, so you could earn 2.4x points on your supermarket spending, and 1.2x on everything else.
That’s on top of these category bonuses:
- 3x points at U.S. supermarkets (4.5x if you use the card 30 or more times in a billing period)
- 2x points at gas stations (3x if you use the card 30 or more times in a billing period)
For most people there isn’t a card that will earn you more Membership Rewards points faster via everyday spending.
So if you value Delta SkyMiles® or any of the other Membership Rewards partners it’s a card worth keeping and using regularly.
Since it’s so generous with ongoing rewards, it’s hard to say whether it’s likely Amex will boost the intro offer for The Amex EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card much further.
