The Blue for Business® Credit Card from American Express Review

Pros & Cons

  • As a new cardholder, just making your first purchase within the initial three months of membership lands you 10,000 Membership Rewards® points.
  • Spend $5,000 within the first six months and you'll earn an additional 15,000 bonus points for a possible total of 25,000 Membership Rewards® points for your intro bonus.
  • Take advantage of 15 months of 0 interest on purchases.
  • Beyond the introductory points opportunity, this card earns at a one-point-per-$1 spent rate. If you spend a lot in particular categories, you could likely earn more with a business card that rewards higher spending in those categories.
