How to Apply for the Amex Blue Cash Everyday Credit Card

The Amex Blue Cash Everyday Credit Card, one of the many American Express credit options, touts a cash back program that trumps almost all of their other personal credit card offers. As opposed to receiving redeemable reward points, sometimes at the hands of a third party, Amex transfers the savings right to you with a 3%, 2%, and 1% cash back return seen on only the best cash back cards. The APR is standard and you can expect your interest rate on purchases to be between 13.49% to 23.49% (APR is subject to change). To further incentivize potential cardholders, Amex offers a $100 statement credit to each user who has spent at least $1,000 within the first 3 months of account opening. Applying for this card is simple and we have provided you with a full tutorial below to assist you through the entire process. Scroll down to get started!
