New AMEX Card Offers 2X Points Per $1 on ALL PURCHASES
American Express just launched the Blue Business Plus Credit Card-offering the highest American Express Membership Rewards return for everyday spending! The new credit card earns 2X Membership Rewards points per $1 spent on the first $50,000 each year and earns 1X point per $1 spent on all other purchases. Most notably, you’ll get the 2X points per $1 spent on all purchases, not just certain categories. The card also comes with a $0 annual fee and offers 0% APR on purchases and balance transfers for 15 months!
The only drawback with the Blue Business Plus card is that it charges a 2.7% foreign transaction fee, so you’ll want to use it exclusively within the USA in most cases. Finally, although the public version of the sign-up link for the card does not offer a sign-up bonus, some travel websites are offering affiliate links which offer 20,000 Membership Reward points after spending $3,000 in the first three months of account opening.
Earning 2X points per $1 spent on all purchases is a big step up from AMEX’s previous offers and is one of the best point returns available for non-bonus category spending in the credit card market today. American Express does offer other cards which offer more points, but they’re targeted at specific spending categories. It’s a bit surprising that the Blue Business Plus card comes with no annual fee given its point earning potential, which is all the more reason why this card is appealing for me. This card just made my short list of next credit cards to apply for.
