The Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express is a good choice for people who do most of their spending at U.S. supermarkets, U.S. gas stations and select U.S. department stores. In fact, we recommend it for families, foodies and fashionistas who want great rewards, all while paying an annual fee of $0. Just keep in mind that there's another version of this card, the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express. It earns a higher rewards rate and has an annual fee of $95. If you're spending more than $61 per week at the supermarket, it's probably a better option than the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express because the higher rewards rates make up for the annual fee.
