For entrepreneurs looking for versatile, custom-made rewards, the SimplyCash® Plus Business Credit Card from American Express is hard to beat.
This $0-annual-fee card gets you an impressive 5% cash back on up to $50,000 a year in combined spending at U.S. office supply stores and on wireless phone service purchased directly from U.S. providers. It also offers 3% cash back in a category you can choose from a list of eight options, on up to $50,000 in spending per year, and 1% cash back on all other eligible purchases. On top of all that, it comes with a solid 0% APR deal: 0% on Purchases for 15 months, and then the ongoing APR of 14.49% - 21.49% Variable APR.
Like many cash-back cards, it charges foreign transaction fees. But for small-business owners who don't plan to make purchases internationally, it's a strong choice. See our full review of the card for more information.
