Tips for a Southern Friendsgiving Powered by American Express

Thanksgiving (and Friendsgiving!) is right around the corner y’all. For those Southerners who can’t make it back home, it’s time to start thinking about how to make this holiday a special one wherever you are in the world. To help you along the way, we wanted to give you a few tips on how to host an epic Southern inspired Friendsgiving, with Blue Cash Everyday making things easier every step of the way.

1) Linens : What better way to make your tablescape stand out than with a great linen.  You can add a touch of fun or keep it simple, but linens are must in the South especially to impress your mother or picky sorority sisters. You can make them yourselves by buying the fabric or get a great set online. No matter what route you choose, American Express can help. New Card Members will get 10% back on Amazon purchases within the first six months of membership, up to $200, whenever they use their Blue Cash Everyday Card. To qualify, sign up for Blue Cash Everyday between now and January 11, 2017.


2) China: Looking to splurge a little on your friendsgiving dinner? Fine china is where it is at and it is part of any epic southern dinner party. What better way to splurge then to make some money, and with the help of American Express, you can do just that.  New Card Members will also earn $100 cash back in the form of statement credit after spending $1,000 on the card within the first three months of Card Membership.


3) Simple Dishes: We don’t all have the magic touch when it comes to holiday cooking (especially when momma is not around) but that doesn’t mean your Friendsgiving can’t be epic, try simple dishes such as cucumber salad to impress your guests.  My #BlueCashEveryday card lets me earn 3% cash back on groceries, 2% back on gas and now for new Card Members, 5% back on eligible travel purchases up to $4,000 which is perfect for a southern hostess on the go. If all else fails, you can always opt for catering at your local grocery store 🙂
