13 Best Grocery Credit Cards (Store Cards & Grocery Rewards)

Most credit cards offer rewards, but not all of them give rewards for supermarket purchases. Most people shop for groceries often, spending around $375 per person in their household per month (as previously reported). Grocery rewards can add up quickly and result in substantial food cost savings. Below, we highlight the credit cards that will give you the best rewards for buying your groceries.

What We Recommend

The overall best credit cards for grocery shopping are Chase Freedom Flex and Chase Freedom Unlimited. Both credit cards offer 5% cash back on groceries up to $12,000 per year, have no annual fees, and 0% APRs for 15 months.

These two cards earn our top spots because you can earn rewards while purchasing groceries anywhere. Some of the other cards that offer 5% cash back must be used at specific stores, such as Kroger and Target. Discover it Cash Back also offers 5% cash back, but the cap is $1,500, and it only covers groceries at certain times of the year.
