Up to 7% Cash Back with Amex Blue At Whole Foods
I have written before how valuable the “Old” Amex Blue card is. After you spend $6,500 per year on the card, it pays 5% cash back at grocery stores, drug stores & gas stations. Well for a limited time American Express is offering a bonus 2% cash back at Whole Foods for Amex Blue cardholders. This means that the “Old” Amex Blue card will earn up to 7% cash back at Whole Foods through February 15, 2015!
While the terms and conditions page of this offer is really long, it basically says you will earn 2% cash back above the normal cash back earned on your version of the Blue Cash card. The three versions which are eligible are the: Blue Cash (Old Amex Blue), Blue Cash Preferred and the Blue Cash Everyday.
In order to be eligible for the offer, you must register before any additional cash back will be paid. You can register for the offer and see all of the applicable terms on the promotion page.
Amex Blue Whole Foods Promotion – Analysis
I am honestly not sure what gift cards are sold at Whole Foods stores. While I shop there on occasion, it has been awhile since my last visit. Considering this promotion runs through the middle of February, I will take my Old Amex Blue card and take a look at which gift cards are available.
If you shop at Whole Foods, then this is a no-brainer. With the Old Amex Blue card, you can earn up to 7% cash back on all purchases after you hit $6,500. If you aren’t a big spender, then the Blue Cash Preferred will pay 8% at Whole Foods up to $6,000 per year. Either way it is best to register for the promotion if you have one of these cards, just in case you shop at Whole Foods later.
This promotion is just another example of how aggressive American Express is being right now. While they don’t have any current Amex Offers for Whole Foods, it is a good idea to look out for them to maximize this savings even further in the future. Either way, make sure to register for this promotion and look for any upcoming Whole Foods promotions to stack it any further. Happy Savings!
