The Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express has just gotten a big makeover and is now much more rewarding than ever before.

With these changes, the card now has a new bonus category, improved cash-back rates, new annual credits, and more — all for the same $0 annual fee (rates & fees).

Let’s get right into it and break down everything you need to know.

Here is a look at both the old and new cash-back rates of the card:

All Other Purchases1% cash-back1% cash-back

Not only will you continue to earn 3% cash-back on up to $6,000 on eligible purchases at U.S. supermarkets each year, but the cash-back rate at U.S. gas stations is being increased to 3% (on up to $6,000 in eligible purchases).

Further, cardholders are getting a whole new bonus category of 3% back on U.S. online retail purchases. That’s right, you’ll be able to get 3% back on the first $6,000 of eligible purchases on U.S. online purchases you make throughout the year.

It is also worth pointing out that the $6,000 caps are per category, not combined.

The additions don’t stop with the new earn rates, so here is a look at the new benefits cardholders will receive:

  • Get a $7 statement credit each month after using your card to spend $9.99 or more each month on an eligible subscription to The Disney Bundle, which includes Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+. Enrollment required and terms apply.
  • Get up to $15 back monthly for online purchases at Home Chef on your Amex Blue Cash Everyday card. Enrollment required and terms apply. Shipping available in the contiguous U.S. only.

Final Thoughts

While cash-back cards aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, there is no denying that this refresh of the Amex Blue Cash Everyday Card is demonstrably better than the old version and is sure to provide significantly more value to cardholders.

From 3 separate 3% cash-back categories to strong statement credits, and no more minimum redemption amounts required, the new Amex Blue Cash Everyday Card is now an extremely attractive cash-back card worthy of consideration.
