Pros and cons
No foreign transaction fee
Has annual fee
The American Express® Business Gold Card offers elevated rewards in your top two spending categories each month, from a list of six. Terms apply.
Your top spending categories are calculated automatically; there's no need to opt in or keep track yourself. It also comes with some sweet perks, including a generous welcome offer: Earn 35,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $5,000 on eligible purchases with the Business Gold Card within the first 3 months of Card Membership. Terms Apply.
Here's the catch: The annual fee of $295 is hefty when compared with other similar business cards. And if your spending patterns don't align with the six areas that are eligible for those bonus rewards — or if you're looking for specific benefits like a 0% intro APR offer or elite travel perks — you might be better off with a different option.
