    Yup. I got the credit on 3/12.



  • I received this email promo (YMMV):
    “Earn 2% more cash back (up to $20) on grocery store and drugstore purchases* between June 1 and July 31, 2020. Be sure to enroll by June 30, 2020.”

    Combined with the 2% grocery category, this should give you 4% cash back.



  • Another email promo (YMMV):

    To be eligible for this offer that runs through August 31, 2020 (promotion period), you need to enroll by July 31, 2020. Cardmember can earn up to $10 in statement credits in each of the below categories for a maximum statement credit of $30.

    • Make $300 or more in net purchases at Home Improvement and Hardware Stores and earn a 1% statement credit, up to $10.

    To me, the only interesting part is the grocery offer, especially if you also have the 2% grocery/drugstore offer (above) and have not used up that $20 bonus yet.
