How to Apply for the Amex Blue Cash Everyday Credit Card

The Blue Cash Everyday Credit Card, one of American Express’s many card options, touts a cash back program that trumps almost all of their other offers. As opposed to receiving redeemable rewards points, sometimes at the hands of a third party, Amex transfers the savings right to you with a 3%, 2%, 1% back split seen on only the best cash back cards. The APRs and fees are standard, albeit high (21.99% APR) for Amex. If you are interested in applying for this credit card please continue down the page to find our official application guide.

Ensure that you are familiar with Amex’s Online Privacy Policy before embarking on the application. It is essential to always be aware of how your information is being handled when submitting it online.
