When does the $6000 supermarket limit reset?

Postby tschmelcher » Sun Oct 06, 2013 8:43 pm

I just got a Blue Cash Preferred card this year which gives 6% back on the first $6000 spent at US supermarkets each year. Does anyone know when that limit resets? Is it at the end of each calendar year or is it on your cardmembership anniversary? If it is at the end of each calendar year then I will buy some gift cards at the end of the year to max out my 6% cash back.

You will earn a reward of: 6% on the first $6,000 of eligible purchases in an annual reward year at supermarkets located in the U.S. (superstores and warehouse clubs are not considered supermarkets). An annual reward year is 12 billing periods in a row starting with the one that begins in January;
