Mommy Points passes along some bad-ish news about the amazing 6% rebate on grocery purchases when you use the Amex Blue Cash Preferred card. Previously there was no cap on how much cash back you could get. However, for the first of the year they are maxing the cash back at $360/year ($6000 spend) for grocery store purchases. The cap does not apply to the 3% rebate on gas purchases.
I your spouse has a card on the same account they can also spend up to the same amount.
Most families will not be affected by the cap (especially if you have two cards in the household). It would appear this is put in place to combat people buying large amounts of gift cards at grocery stores and getting 6 percent back on that. While getting rebates on gift cards is permitted, I’m certain that isn’t what Amex had in mind with the card.
Not a huge deal, especially if you weren’t hoarding gift cards, but it’s a change.
