Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express®

The Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express® has got a lot going for it. Though it comes with an annual fee of $95, you can get a $200 statement credit when you spend $1,000 in the first three months to help offset the cost. There is also a Blue Cash Everyday® (Review) version of this card with no annual fee, but lower reward earnings.
