If you're active duty or a veteran, and qualify for USAA, this is a great card to save your family money.
Brad's Deals Editor Mark,
Get 5% Cash Back at Gas Stations and Military Bases with the USAA Cashback Rewards Plus American Express® card. This bonus is limited to the first $3,000 in purchases annually combined between the two categories. You'll also receive 2% cash back on groceries (up to $3,000 annually), and 1% on everything else. Variable APR is 12.40% to 26.40% APR, but there's no annual fee. Plus, enjoy no foreign transaction fees when you travel outside of the United States. There are special military benefits with this card as well. You'll get 4% APR on all balances for up to 12 months during deployment or PCS. After 12 months, the regular APR, currently between 12.40% to 26.40%, will apply. This rate will vary with the market based on the prime rate. When you have a balance on your account at the time you enter active military duty, you'll get 4% APR on that existing balance until one year after you complete active duty. They'll also rebate all finance charges accrued while you served in a qualified military campaign. Not sure if you qualify for USAA? Check your eligibility here.
