5 2015-06-23 13:00:11 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 as well as earning 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. 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.

If you're carrying a balance on another high-interest card, you can move it over to Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express and enjoy an interest-free 15 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 15-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.

Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express is a terrific combination of cash back rewards with a 15-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.
