With the The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express, you can finance your business with a long intro APR period, spend above your credit limit if needed, and earn double the points on all purchases up to an annual spending cap. There's no need to concern yourself with spending categories. Terms apply.
The $0-annual-fee card earns 2X Membership Rewards points on the first $50,000 in purchases each calendar year, and 1X points on spending above $50,000. You also get an intro 0% on Purchases and Balance Transfers for 12 months, and then the ongoing APR of 15.24% - 21.24% Variable APR. Terms apply.
If you're seeking a welcome offer or the chance to earn elevated rewards on specific spending, you'll want to look elsewhere. The card’s also not a good fit for businesses with expenses that far exceed the card’s annual cap on double rewards.
