Everyone knows that price of food and other products continue to rise. To keep our budgets balanced, we try to look for sales and use coupons. Another way to save money on groceries is to use a credit card that gives you cash back when you use it. The new American Express Blue Cash® Cards have a cash back program which includes 6% on groceries.
Unlike other credit cards, the American Express Blue cash back program is easy understand, the benefits don't change monthly, and there is no spend minimums. Both Cards immediately offer cash back in categories in which prices are particularly under pressure: gas, supermarket purchases and department stores. Whether when shopping online or in-store, offers an easy-to-understand rewards structure:
o For Blue Cash Preferred, it’s as simple as 6%-3%-1% (6% cash back at supermarkets, up to 3% at department stores and gas stations, and 1% on all other eligible purchases). At 6% cash back, Blue Cash Preferred offers consumers the most cash back at the supermarket available in the market today. (Blue Cash Preferred carries a $75 annual fee)
o For Blue Cash Everyday, it’s a simple as 3%-2%-1% (3% cash back at supermarkets, 2% cash back at department stores and gas stations, and 1% on all other eligible purchases) with no annual fee.

Frozen Fruit Medley Dessert Cups
This is a great dessert for summer! Cool and refreshing without many calories. Also cheaper in summer since it asks for fresh fruit.
