Amex EveryDay® Preferred Review: Fast way to earn Delta miles

Pros

This offer is expired

Possible to earn 1.5 points per dollar or more on everything. This card is unique because as long as you it 30 or more times in a billing cycle, you’ll get a 50% bonus on the points you earn during that cycle, with no limits. So that works out to 1.5 points per dollar on your base spending.

And the card also earns 2x points on gas and 3x points on U.S. supermarket purchases (up to $6,000 per year), and the 50% bonus counts on those purchases too. So you can earn up to 4.5 points per dollar at U.S. supermarkets and 3 points per dollar at gas stations.

Transfer to real airline miles. With the Membership Rewards program you can transfer your points into real airline miles with Delta, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Air France / KLM, Alitalia, and more. This can be the most valuable use of your points, especially if you’re trying to boost a balance of miles you already have.

Cons

Foreign transaction fees. This isn’t a great choice for spending abroad, as there’s a 2.7% fee on foreign transactions.

A small intro offer. The intro point bonus on this card isn’t all that exciting, so this is really one to get if you want to use it heavily for your ongoing spending, since the ongoing earning is so powerful.

Cash redemption not great. If you’re looking to earn straight cash back, this isn’t a great option, as one point isn’t worth one cent in cash with this card. It’s worth about half that in some cases. This card is best if you’re looking to use your points for travel or some gift cards.

Cap on supermarket bonus. The 3x points on supermarket spending (4.5x if you use the card 30 times in a billing cycle) is capped at $6,000 in spending a year. It’s still a lot of points – you’ll earn 27,000 points a year from your supermarket spending if you use the card 30 times each billing cycle in a year.
