You make a monthly budget, figure you’re going to stick to it. You’ve accounted for all possible expenses, planned for everything, right? The something weird happens, then something falls off the car, and everything’s gone wrong. Sadly, you can’t really plan for the everyday challenges life throws at you.
So, if life’s going to stick it to you, you might as well take advantage of the situation. That’s why American Express is rolling out the Everyday Card, which pays out rewards points for just about every purchase you make. American Express has partnered with over 500 brands for the new rewards program, which covers dozens of homeware and clothing brands.
But, when it comes to everyday purchases, we’re going to be talking about food. That’s why American Express has saved the best rewards for when you shop at supermarkets – if you go grocery shopping in the U.S., you’ll score double rewards points. That way, even when those everyday purchases start adding up over the course of a month, the rewards points will be adding up just as fast.
With the Everyday Card, those everyday challenges can become everyday triumphs. In a new video, Shameless Maya of YouTube fame talks about her hiking adventure after spending a little too much time cooped up working – American Express wants to know about the little hurdles you have to jump, and how they can help you clear them.
The Everyday Card is designed to help – the more you use it, the more you’ll benefit. If you make more than 20 purchases in one month, you can earn up to 20% more rewards. And, best of all, there’s the matter of the annual fee – there isn’t one. That’s one hurdle you won’t have to jump.
