About This Card

The American Express SimplyCash Preferred Card credit card is a premium cash back card for people with a good credit score. Like many premium cards, the SimplyCash Preferred comes with an annual fee of $99, but it doesn’t have a minimum income requirement like many similar higher-end cards.

The American Express SimplyCash Preferred Card’s main feature is its big 10% cash-back rate for new cardholders. It’s only available for the first six months but allows users to earn cash-back faster than they would at the regular rate, which is set at 2%. Unlike other cash-back cards, the cash-back rate applies to all purchases, not just on certain categories.  So even without the special introductory rate, you still stand to earn more cash back with this card if you stick with it.

The card has a standard annual interest rate of 19.99% on purchases and 21.99% on cash advances.
