    The Business Platinum Card® from American Express comes with rewards and perks galore, many relevant to the traveling small-business owner. But they come at the price of a large annual fee: $695

    Among its rewards, this card earns 5 points on flights and prepaid hotels booked through the American Express Travel website; 1.5 points per dollar on individual purchases of $5,000 or more; and 1 point per dollar spent on everything else. Terms apply.

    There's also an enticing welcome bonus: Earn 120,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $15,000 on eligible purchases with the Business Platinum Card within the first 3 months of Card Membership. Terms Apply.

    It showers you with relevant perks, too, such as:

    --$200 airline fee credit.

    --Reimbursement for applications to Global Entry or TSA Precheck.

    --Airport lounge access.

    --Terms apply.

    If you don’t travel or spend much, you might have difficulty reaping enough value to compensate for the sizable annual fee. But road warriors who spend big might find The Business Platinum Card® from American Express worth it.
