Recently, I stumbled across an increased bonus offer for the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express. This hidden welcome offer gives you $300 back after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first six months of having the card. That’s $50 more than the standard offer. This welcome offer beats all of the public offers we know about. But you may need to do some work to find it. There is no direct link to this offer we know about. If we find one, we’ll update this post.
The Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express is simultaneously one of the best cards for groceries, the best cards for gas, and one of the best cards to use for purchases of durable goods because of its extended warranty, purchase protection, and return protection benefits.
How we found the $300 welcome offer
We found this offer by visiting the direct link to the Amex website for the Blue Cash Preferred card in Incognito mode in Chrome. Here’s the link directly to the Amex website. You can usually right-click on this link in your web browser to open it in an incognito or private browsing window.
Although we found this offer on January 9, 2024 shortly before publishing this post, we have been unable to find the offer again. Hopefully you have better luck than we have. You can also try one of our other methods for finding increased Amex welcome offers.
