Credit Card Offers

Blue Cash Preferred: Up To $450 Back ($250 Sign Up Bonus + 5% On Travel)

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Receive a sign up bonus of $250 after you spend $1,000 on purchases within the first three months of card membership on the Blue Cash Preferred card (You might see an offer for only $150, apparently I was seeing the higher incognito mode offer)
  • You’ll also earn 5% back on up to $4,000 in eligible travel purchases on the card within the first six months of card membership

blue cash preferred


Card Details

  • $95 annual fee (recently increased)
  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 6% cash back at U.S. supermarkets (up to $6,000 in spend annually, then 1%)
    • 3% cash back at U.S. gas stations and select U.S. department stores
    • 1% back on all other purchases
  • You can only get the sign up bonus on American Express cards once

Our Verdict

The standard bonus on this card is $150, recently they have offered the following:

You can also sometimes get $250 back by using incognito mode. This deal is much better than the Every Day card because the actual sign up bonus is much higher than normal. I don’t think we’ve seen a better offer than this anytime, even with incognito mode (I’m sure people will point out in the comments if I’m wrong on that, I’m not 100% sure).  Before applying for either read these things you should know about American Express cards.

Looks like American Express will continue to tweak these offers and offer a higher than normal standard bonus, plus a spending bonus on a specific category.

The link doesn’t work. It took me to the BC card not the preferred.

Annual fee waived first year or no?

kept getting $150 sign-up bonus even in incognito mode

Your text says that the spend requirement is $500, but the screenshot shows $1,000. $250 on $500 spend would be too good to be true–which is it?

it’s probably $1000 – that’s what all the $250 bonuses are for the BCE/BCP cards

also getting $150 sign-up bonus even in incognito mode

man, the $250+10% on Wireless is looking better all the time. Especially with the 6% grocers – i can’t MS much at grocers, but the few times i’ve gotten lucky have more than covered the BCP’s AF.

i dunno if i’ll keep the BCP going forward,if i can’t find a MS’able grocer.

Tried a dozen times in incognito in Chrome and Safari and was only given the $150 offer

Go to DansDeals, click credit cards at the top left – I pulled the $250.00 incognito many times in a row.

Tried Dan’s deals and couldn’t get it to work in incognito. I’m i doing it wrong or is the deal dead?

Link works, got it today after trying 3 times in Chrome (incognito) $250 after spend $1000 + 5% up to $4,000 in eligible travel.
Open link and copy the entire web address then go to Chrome or Firefox incognito mode and paste the link address on browser, try a few times if doesn’t work the 1st.

Dang when did they take Walmart out of the supermarket category?

Does AMEX still do the 5% on travel 1st 6 mo?

Got the $250 signup bonus but not the 5% off $4k in travel pasting URL into incognito.
