Dan put one up on the main page today:
The Costco AMEX business card still has 5% back.

Discover's version is a complete scam. Read the fine print!

I just signed up for blue cash and they told me, that I get 5% Cash Back on every thing gas grocery bakery clothing etc. I also made sure that he recorded this info. So I don't know what you mean It's over. P.S. I did not order the costco card It's their regular blue cash card.

The blue is "up to 5%". It depends on how much you spend.

just got a letter that my amex simply cash is going down to 3% for gas on OCTOBER15. I thought according to what DAN said that we would be grandfathered in for at least a year. I obviously got the card before dans last post saying to get in now. DID anyone else get this letter ? Is there anything I can do?

Word is that old Amex Blue Cash (5% on Drugstores after $6500 spend) is now active again.  H/t OMS

Thoughts?

"For your first $6,500 of eligible purchases in the 12 billing periods in a row beginning with the one in which the anniversary of your Card Account occurs (reward year), you will receive a reward of 1% on Everyday Purchases and a reward of 0.5% on all other eligible purchases. For each dollar of eligible purchases in excess of $6,500 in that same reward year, you will receive a reward of 5% on Everyday Purchases and a reward of 1% on other purchases. If your billing cycle changes, the length of your reward year will also change."

What happens after 12 billing cycles? Is it still at 5%?

No, the rewards then reset and you'll need to spend another 6500.

Do you have to get a new card with this offer, or would it apply to an old card as well?

The place I saw the link said that he was able to switch from the Blue Cash Preferred to this version without any trouble, but one of the commenters said the phone rep didn't let him.

So, maybe?
