Hi all, I need advice on the credit card to chose. I’m confused between amex blue cash vs amex everyday. I travel once a year domestic and once in every two years to India. So is it good to apply for amex every day card or blue cash.
Both are cash back and considering how little you travel, that might be best for you. The blue cash gets 3% back on Groceries, 2% back on gas, and 1% on everything else. The everyday gets 2% on Groceries and 1% on everything else. I’m pretty sure that there is a card that gets you 5% back on gas and groceries and 1.5% back on everything else (if someone knows what I’m talking about please tell me.) However, do not get the capital one venture card, it is just a 2% cash back card that can only be used on airfare.
Actually the Everyday card earns Membership Rewards points but in general I’d agree with Hugh’s advice of using cash back cards and paying with cash for your ticket. I’d get the Blue cash and pair it with a Citi Double Cash or Fidelity Visa for day to day spending. I’d also consider the Barclays Arrival Plus for the sign up bonus.
Ben did do a comparison of the different flavors a while back: [URL]http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2014/03/04/amex-everyday-and-blue-cash-card-differences/[/URL]
