Q: How can I earn the most cash back with my Blue Cash from American Express card? How much do I have to spend, and what should I buy in order to earn these rewards?
A: The Blue Cash credit card from American Express is just one of those offered by the company that provides cash back rewards. It is possible to earn as much as 5% cash back on purchases that you make every day; it doesn’t have to be just special or one-time purchases. Every day purchases include motor vehicle fuel, groceries, and items bought from drugstores.
This doesn’t mean you can’t earn cash back rewards on other purchases. They can get you as much as 1.25% cash back.
You’re not limited as to how many cash reward points you can earn. The more you spend, the more your cash back rewards will be.
If you want to earn cash back quicker, spend more than $6,500 on your Blue Cash card. This will boost your regular purchases (those that aren’t considered every day purchases) from 0.5% to 1.25% on all those, and from 1% to 5% on the everyday purchases.
You can also earn cash back on recurring bills; that is, those bills that you have set up to be charged to your Blue Cash credit card every month. These can include utility bills, club or organization memberships, and other monthly payments that you choose to add to the card.
