Money saving tips for every day life.

April 18, 2018

This post is in partnership with American Express, and all opinions are our own.

As you know, I love finding money saving hacks. A few years ago Gabe and I did a good deal of credit card research to see which could help us rack up savings, and American Express is what we landed on. We have used Amex for business and travel purchases, so we were both onboard when we heard about some of the new perks that come with the Amex EveryDay card. We’re excited to partner with them and share with you some of aspects of the Card we are taking advantage of!


Some of our favorite Amex EveryDay Card offers and benefits that are helping us earn rewards:

  • $0 balance transfer fee** on balance transfers made within the first 60 days of account opening. – We had a small balance on another card that had no rewards benefits so we transferred that over and closed the old card.
  • Earn a welcome bonus of 10,000 Membership Rewards Points* after making $1,000 in purchases on the Card in the first 3 months. – This is pretty easy for us in a large family to rack up on monthly needs and current home projects, and we will just pay the balance off at the end of each month. Those 10,000 rewards points will hopefully go towards a 10 yr. Anniversary trip we have been saving for!
  • You also get 2x Points on supermarket purchases* (up to $6,000 in a year!) and 1x Points for every eligible dollar you spend* 

*Read about the offer and benefit terms.

** Note the rates and fees that apply.

This past week alone we used the card to pick up paint, patio plants, groceries, and even a lunch date. Simple ways to rack up rewards in our every day life, and we pay off the balance at the end of the month. Hope these tips are helpful! Looking forward to sharing more perks about this card this year…we will be updating this post as we go.

On a more serious note, anyone consider a date to the grocery store an exciting Friday night? (Hand raised. We have arrived.)
