Using your American Express card at Walmart
Your American Express card may offer accelerated rewards on groceries. Unfortunately, you might not get this rewards rate when you use the card at standard Walmart stores. This is because stores such as Walmart and Target are labeled as “superstores” under the Amex fine print.
If you’re not sure whether your card provider classifies Walmart purchases as bonus spending, give it a call and ask a representative.

Other rewards cards can also prove good choices if you prefer redeeming your rewards elsewhere or also spend at other grocery stores from time to time. Compare your reward card options to find one that best suits your shopping preferences.
