The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express now has an initial bonus offer. Most of the time it hasn’t. Frankly, the card is too good, and extra points should get you to pay attention.
The up front offer is to earn 15,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $3,000 in eligible purchases on the Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership. And it’s a no annual fee card (see rates and fees).
What makes the card special though is that it earns two membership rewards points on all of your purchases (up to $50,000 in purchases per year). That makes this the best and most rewarding card for otherwise-unbonused spend. These are transferable points you can move to:
- Star Alliance: Air Canada, ANA, Avianca, Singapore
- oneworld: British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Iberia, Qantas, Qatar
- SkyTeam: Aeromexico, Air France KLM, Delta, Virgin Atlantic
- Non-alliance: Aer Lingus, Emirates, Etihad, Hawaiian, JetBlue
- Hotels: Choice, Hilton, Marriott
I always say you should never earn just one mile per dollar. Here you can spend up to $50,000 on the card and earn 2 points per dollar on all of it, without having to be in special categories like travel or dining. So it’s where you should consider putting your spend that doesn’t earn bonuses on other cards.
