Amex business credit card welcome offers increased

Both the Blue Business Plus Credit Card and the Blue Business Cash Card did not have welcome offers prior to this. Even before the increased bonuses, they were still both respectable business credit cards with no annual fee.

On top of that, they both come with a long list of benefits, including:

  • Expanded buying power: You are able to spend above your credit limit based on your credit record, payment history and other factors.
  • Quickbooks integration: For business owners who use Quickbooks for their accounting, you can have your expenses automatically tagged with your expense categories.
  • Rental car insurance: Instead of paying for rental car insurance through your rental car provider, American Express provides it for free. Simply decline their insurance, pay with your American Express credit card, and you will have secondary coverage in case something happens during your travels.

Blue Business Plus Credit Card

The Blue Business Plus Credit Card is a great card for earning Membership Rewards points with ease. As you spend on the card, you earn 2X points for every dollar spent on purchases, up to $50,000 per year. All purchases after that earn 1X point per dollar. This is convenient for many as they do not need to track multiple credit cards and figure out various bonus spending categories. In fact, this earning rate makes it one of the best card for non-bonused spend.

Now, the card comes with a solid welcome bonus: You can earn 15,000 points after you spend $3,000 in eligible purchases on the card within your first 3 months of card membership.

While 15,000 points may not sound like much, Membership Rewards are valuable as you can transfer them to a variety of airline and hotel loyalty programs. And if you pair this card with another American Express business credit card like The Business Platinum Card® from American Express, it makes for a great combo to earn heaps of Membership Rewards points.
