What does "Eligible Grocery Purchase" mean?

Postby GoCreditGo! » Mon Nov 18, 2013 4:53 pm

AMEX states this:

“Eligible Grocery Purchase” means consumer retail purchases at American Express merchants in Canada whose primary business is the sale of everyday food and grocery items as categorized on American Express systems, excluding purchases at stand-alone retail merchants selling alcohol, merchants for which the sale of everyday food and grocery items is adjunct to their primary business and wholesale clubs.


So does Walmart count? They do groceries, homewares and liquor.
Costco?
Trader Joes?

Does anyone know of a list of stores?

What you quoted answers this one.

AmEx should be able to answer questions on the other retailers.

Places such as Wally world, Target, and Costco do not count as groceries. Places such as Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Sprouts, HEB, Albertsons, Kroger owned stores, and Safeway owned stores do count.
Wallet:
AMEX BCP: 9K (2012) (every day expenses, gas, groceries, department stores)
AMEX Zync: NPSL (2011) (large expenses)
AMEX Costco: 4k (2013) (Costco, gas, and restaurants)
Discover IT: 5K (2010)
PenFed Plat Rewards Visa: 3K (2012) (Gas, Target)
USAA Plat MC: 7K (2010) (everyday expenses, places that do not take Amex or Discover)
US Bank Cash+: 7K (2012)
Target REDCard 3k (2013)

Thanks. That helps me figure out my 2 points per dollar spent.
