The Blue from American Express® card has a pretty meager rewards program:

  • 2X Membership Rewards points per dollar at Amex Travel
  • 1X Membership Rewards point per dollar on all other purchases

You’ll also get some very basic American Express benefits.

This card does not provide any introductory offers or yearly bonuses, and only offers lackluster point earnings.

American Express also offers the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express (Review), and the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express (Review).

This card has no annual fee.
