While the base bonus hasn’t changed, higher-spending business owners can reap even more reward points. The new offer:

Earn 75,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $15,000 on qualifying purchases within your first 3 months of Card Membership. Terms apply.

Previously, the second tier of that bonus — the bonus for additional spending — offered just 25,000 extra points after you spent an additional $10,000 in the first three months.

NerdWallet values Membership Rewards points at about 1 cent each, so the bonus can return $1,000 worth of value, more than enough to offset the annual fee of $595.

Frequent business travelers who enjoy premium perks will find that The Business Platinum Card® from American Express delivers:

  • 5 points per $1 spent on flights and prepaid hotels on amextravel.com.

  • 1.5 points per dollar on each eligible purchase of $5,000 or more.

  • 1 point per dollar on all other purchases.

  • $200 annual credit for incidental airline fees.

  • Access to more than 1,200 airport lounges worldwide through the Global Lounge Collection, including AmEx's exclusive Centurion lounges.

  • Gold status in the Marriott Bonvoy and Hilton Honors hotel loyalty programs.

  • Statement credit every four years for the Global Entry application fee or every 4.5 years for TSA Precheck.

Terms apply.

The enhanced welcome bonus is available only to new cardholders who have never had The Business Platinum Card® from American Express. » MORE: Full review of The Business Platinum Card® from American Express
