11/16 Contest Update: We've extended the deadline for this contest to 9 a.m. ET 11/21.

We’re big fans of saving money wherever we can, especially on the essentials.  That’s why earning cash back makes so much sense to us.

In addition to our just announced Cash Back program where you can earn an average of 5% cash back from your eligible online purchases at over 1600 stores through, there’s a new cash back credit card from American Express where you can earn cash back through American Express called the Blue Cash Card.

With this card, you can receive cash back: 3%  on groceries and 2% on gas!  That really adds up over the course of a year. Take my groceries and gas, for example:

  • $340 on average per month spent on groceries = $4,080 per year. I could earn $122.40 cash back from groceries alone.
  • $140 on average per month spent on gas = $1680 per year. I could earn $33.60 cash back from just buying gas.

It comes out to $156 in extra money each year by using the Blue Cash Card on these basic purchases. I could put that savings to good use, especially with the holidays approaching.

How much can you save over a year with these cash back rates?  We’re teaming up with American Express to bring this contest to you. Tell us on Twitter for a chance to win a $300 American Express gift card!
