Update 12/5/22: The spend requirement for the Disney bundle credit is being lowered from $13.99 to $12.99. (ht Grant) The change is due to the multi-tier pricing being introduced by Disney on December 8th: $9.99, $12.99, and $19.99.

Full Updated Card Details
- No annual fee
- 3% cash back at U.S. Supermarkets, Gas Stations, and Online Retailers (on up to $6,000 per year in purchases for each category, then 1%)
- 1% back on other purchases
- Receive up to $15 per month in statement credits from Home Chef meal delivery. Enrollment required.
- Receive $7 back each month (up to $84 back annually) after spending $13.99 or more each month on an eligible subscription to The Disney Bundle which includes Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ using your Card. Enrollment required.
- Low intro APR: 0% for 15 months on purchases and balance transfers, then a variable rate
This definitely makes the card more compelling as an entry level no-fee card. The online category can be interesting to spruce up your earnings if you typically earn just 2% for your online purchases. Gas at 3% isn’t bad, but you might already have another card that earns that amount or more.
The statement credits are interesting for a no-fee card. Some of us already get Disney for free with the Amex Platinum card, and there might be other signup deals for that service. Honestly, though, this is an impressive benefit which will be worth a full $84/year for many people who are paying for that bundle regardless.
I’ve never used Home Chef, and there’s probably no way to order $15 of food. Still, this credit is worth good money to someone who uses Home Chef anyway. Even if not, it can make for interesting stack for when Swagbucks or other intro offers arise.
The Disney benefit is available on the Blue Cash Preferred card as well. Enrollment required.
