The American Express Blue Cash Preferred card is most popular for being a great cash back card for big spenders at grocery stores.
But, it is also a decent credit card if you often make purchases at gas stations and select U.S. department stores, including Kohl’s, Century 21, Sear's, Macy’s and J.C. Penney.
However, at the price of a $75 annual fee, it’s best that you maximize the cash back benefits of shopping at supermarkets. The cash back earned at department stores should be considered an extra benefit that comes in handy for back-to-school shopping.
Noteworthy card features:
- $75 annual fee
- Get 6% cash back at U.S. stand-alone supermarkets, 3% cash back on gasoline at U.S. stand-alone gas stations and select major department stores; 1% cash back on other purchases.
- The first $6,000 of purchases at U.S. stand-alone supermarkets in a calendar year qualifies for 6% cash back; 1% thereafter.
