Amex Launches New Business Card

American Express announce today the launch of a new business charge card called Blue Business Plus. Let’s take a look at this new card and its features.

Amex Blue Business Plus

Today American Express OPEN announced the launch of Blue Business Plus, a new, no-annual-fee credit card for freelancers and growing small businesses. Blue Business Plus helps address those needs with tools to help earn rewards on everyday purchases and manage cash flow, all for no annual fee. These include:

  • 2X Membership Reward® points on the first $50,000 spent each calendar year, with no category restrictions
  • 1X Membership Reward® points on purchases thereafter
  • A 0% introductory APR on purchases and balance transfers for up to 12 months
  • The ability to spend above the credit limit, so Card Members can pursue growth opportunities quickly without making calls or paying overlimit fees
  • No Annual Fee
  • Free Additional Cards

Update: 20K Sign Up Bonus

If you go directly to the American Express website you won’t see a sign-up bonus, but there is a 20K bonus available on this card after $3K in spend during the first 4 months.

The main selling points of this card is that it will earn 2X Membership Reward points everywhere for the first $50,000 spent each calendar year. That probably makes it a 3% cashback everywhere card for most people, based on the value of MR points. That’s great earning for non-bonused spend.

The card also comes with no annual fee and a 0% introductory APR on purchases and balance transfers for up to 15 months. As with all Amex cards, you can also take advantage of Amex Offers, on the primary and additional cards.


A great card now that besides the 2x MR earning, also has a 20K bonus. I was on the fence initially before the bonus came up, but now it makes sense for most people.

  1. It seems that there must be different links. Other sites are showing it as having a 20K point sign-up bonus. Maybe it is only through the affiliate channels?

    • There was no bonus when it was initially announced. Then affiliate links with bonus came out and now there’s a direct link also.
