Full Review:
The Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express (a NextAdvisor advertiser) is an excellent choice for those who would like a 0% introductory APR on purchases and balance transfers, 10% back at wireless phone carriers, and to earn unlimited cash back on gas, groceries, and nearly any other purchase while paying no annual fee.

This card stands out from its competition by always offering 3% cash back at US supermarkets (on up to $6,000 in purchases, after that 1%). You'll also earn 2% cash back at US gas stations and select US department stores like JCP, Sears, Nordstrom and Macy's, and all your other purchases will earn 1% cash back. This card will particularly appeal to anyone who spends a decent amount at supermarkets and gas stations. The fact that you earn this cash back automatically is particularly convenient, as some other cash back cards require you to sign up each quarter to receive additional cash back percentages.

In addition to the cash back percentages mentioned above, for a limited time - you need to apply by 6/15/16 - you'll earn a whopping 10% cash back at US wireless phone service providers from now until the end of 2016 (up to a $200 cash back max). So if you use your card at a wireless phone service provider to pay for your mobile phone bill, a phone, or phone accessories, you can earn up to an extra $200 this year! Add to this the fact you get a $100 bonus (redeemable for a $100 statement credit) after spending $1,000 in the first 3 months and you've got a really good cash back rewards card. Together both bonuses add up to $300, a very nice perk indeed.

If you're carrying a balance on another high-interest card, you can move it over to the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express and enjoy an interest-free 12 months, which can save you a bunch of money. Note that there is a 3% balance transfer fee, but it could be worth it - particularly if you're paying enough interest currently. To find out, use our free Balance Transfer Calculator which will do all the math for you and display how much you can save with each card. You can also utilize the 12-month 0% on purchases, not paying any interest for over a year on new purchases.

In addition you'll get great AmEx perks like roadside assistance, car rental insurance and travel accident insurance. Plus your purchases will be safeguarded by purchase protection, extended warranty and return protection. You'll also enjoy exclusive access to ticket presales and cardmember-only events.

The Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express is a terrific combination of cash back rewards with a 12-month 0% intro APR on balance transfers and purchases. Not to mention there is no annual fee. If you use a credit card frequently at supermarkets, gas stations and department stores, Blue Cash Everyday may be your best choice.
