In case anyone can't read the faint tiny print, I got the promotion, too. It's definitely starting October 12, 2022, and for groceries only; other purchases remain at 1.25%. Anything that can be considered a "cash equivalent" like gift certificates, coupons or balance transfers such doesn't earn anything.

On the down side, the interest for balances carried will rise.

And we'll lose our neat transparent Cash Back cards with the spacey hologram, which will be replaced by that boring blue you see in the image in the last post. The transparent cards make it easy to locate and sever the antenna wire enabling contactless transactions; Amex is among the few financial institutions that still won't let clients disable contactless in software or their account profiles.
