For the blue Cash Preferred card Anyway to track how much you have spent in groceries in your year to know if you have more to go or have hit hit the $6k max? Also, how do I find out when my year renews?

acct home > blue card  > view billing statement  (under balances area) > 
The last page of your bill (available on line) has the spending categories listed separately.  add them all up?
You can see how far back your bills go.  Check when your last annual fee was, or when your first statement was.

is it worth applying for it just based on 6% for groceries? max is $360- $75 annual fee= $285

As part of a 3BM?  Hey, $285 is $285!  I know it's not 30K points, but how much are 30K points worth anyway, and cash is spendable!

Back out the 2ppd (3%) on PRG or 2.2% on the Arrival/SPG from that equation.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Had anyone ever double-dipped on a signup bonus?
I was given the signup bonus for a certain card by chase before I hit the threshold for some reason. Will I get it again if I meet the threshold, or will the rep have taken it out of the system?
Thanks

If that happened to me I'd hit the threshold and see what happens.

You will get bonus. However, rep might tell you to upgrade the card rather than approving a new application.

Is a better option to downgrade to another freedom?
