Editor's Review
SimplyCash® Card from American Express

The American Express SimplyCash® Card features no annual fees and offers cardholders a flat, unlimited cashback rate. Just as with the SimplyCash® Preferred Card, American Express offers its members the opportunity to receive a generous bonus for referrals. Its customer care professionals are available around-the-clock to address cardholder concerns and fraud protection is included with every card.

Features and Benefits of the SimplyCash® Card 
  • Earn up to $100 in Statement Credits
  • Up to $750 cashback annually for approved referrals
  • Purchase Protection Plan covers all purchases made with the card
  • Front of the Line ticket access for concerts, dining, film, and other experiences with American Express Invites
  • Built-in fraud protection and emergency card replacements
  • $100,000 travel accident insurance that includes a Buyer's Assurance Protection Plan

Pros and Cons of the SimplyCash® Card 


Pros

  • No annual fees
  • Cashback is unlimited
  • Purchase Protection Plan protects you from shopping with bad merchants
  • Early access to concerts and other events

Cons

  • Amex isn't accepted as widely as Visa and Mastercard
  • Travel benefits are reduced when compared with the SimplyCash Preferred Card


The Takeaway

The SimplyCash® Card from American Express is among the best choices for individuals who are looking for a cashback card that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Because cashback earnings aren't limited with this card and the interest rate is reasonable, this card makes a great choice for everyday use. Those who travel frequently and require comprehensive insurance may want to consider upgrading to the SimplyCash Preferred Card, as the SimplyCash card's travel insurance benefits are limited by comparison.
