Kourtney Kardashian posted a photo of herself to Instagram carrying a credit card with the tag line, “Do you take Amex?”

While she’s reported to earn six figures for a sponsored instagram post, there are no such disclosures here and lawyers in the financial services industry are pretty persnickety about such things. So I take this to be her go-to card.

Do you take Amex?

A post shared by Kourtney Kardashian (@kourtneykardash) on

Samantha Rosen identifies the card in the photo as either,

  • Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express which earns 3% cash back at U.S. supermarkets (on up to $6,000 per year in purchases, then 1%); 2% cash back at U.S. gas stations and at select U.S. department stores; 1% back on other purchases. [Offer expired]

  • Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express which earns 6% Cash Back on select U.S. streaming subscriptions; 3% on transit including taxis/rideshare, parking, tolls, trains, buses and more; 6% at U.S. supermarkets on up to $6,000 per year in purchases (then 1%); and 3% Cash Back at U.S. gas stations.

Both are good enough cash back cards, though she’d probably be better off earning a straight 2% on everything or graduating to really focus on rewards with the very best card for getting started in miles and points the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card.

What’s striking through is that she’s not tossing down a hunk of metal like the Amex Black Card, which once even stopped a bullet and saved the life of the cardmember.

And she’s not using a low profile version of the much higher-profile JP Morgan Reserve Card like President Obama was snapped doing at Franklin Barbecue in Austin, Texas (he’s the only person ever to have skipped the line there without using a line sitting service or calling ahead).

  1. Gary — Six figures for one post? Our society is sick. This is a good parallel to DJT. Apparently all that matters is branding.

  2. She’s trash as are her sisters. Good for them that they figured out how to manipulate stupid Americans and others and make money from it I guess but it all started with a porn video. no need to further this filth. stop supporting trash;

  3. So sick of these people already, I don’t even watch or keep up with this crap, yet somehow I always see something about one of these people on the news, radio, etc.. Can they just go away already?

  4. @Ron
    No, they’re not going away. Ever. They are the present and the future. Monsters have been created but a whole generation has bought into the hideousness, hook, line and sinker. Just look at the fanatical following of the Youtube horrors, like Paul Someone or Someone Paul ( ie the guy who made the video in The Japanese suicide forest)….zero talent , appalling taste but a multi millionaire on the basis of being followed by the zombie generation.

  5. @Ron…the more you want these type of people to go away, the more they’ll show the place all over the place and make money.

  6. @Paulo: But now I know where to dump the bodies of the people I kill in Japan. They’ll be assumed suicides. The Yakuza have gotta love this.

    As to the Kardashians, I think it’s great she can get rich off her celebrity. I don’t watch or care, so it doesn’t affect me. There are YouTuber’s (sounds like someone floating on an innertube down a river) making millions with stupid videos. I know one who makes totally worthless videos that will only make you stupider and him richer. If advertisers want to pay, good for him.

    BTW I was thinking Centurion Card in the photo. It should come with 100,000 MR’s each year because anyone stupid enough to not get bonus categories deserves SOMETHING for the gigantic fee.
