I received an email from USAA touting their USAA Cashback Rewards Plus American Express Credit Card. I almost immediately deleted it, because I just figured it wouldn’t be that worthwhile getting, but the thought of you, my faithful readers, made me keep reading. I’m glad I did.
It’s got some interesting category bonuses, ones that are very germaine of us living near a base, which I think is probably most of us. They include:
5% cash back on your first $3,000 in gas and military base purchases annually on these categories combined
2% cash back on your first $3,000 in supermarket purchases per year
Unlimited 1% cash back on everything else
These are really strong category bonuses; if you max out the first one, that’s $150 back on activities that you’d likely be doing anyways, and $60 back on the 2nd category.
What I can’t figure out is whether on-base commissaries count towards the first or the second category bonus. Anyone have any insights on that? Anyone going to get this one? I think I just might!
