No annual fee, and 2x MR points on all purchases! Unbelievable for regular spending, (beats FU IMHO), but no signup bonus as of yet. Let's wait and see..

So it'll last a few weeks, then switch back to what you were using before

Not even, the lack of signup bonus (for now) negates any plus over another card. Unless you're mamash out of Amex cards to apply for, and are applying for something else simultaneously, this isn't great. Think about it: The FU, even assuming UR and MR are equal (MR are better IMHO if you have the BP), will earn you 1.5 UR. But because of the initial (at least) 15k UR (plus referral bonus), you're technically earning 2 UR per dollar for your first 30k of spending.. Although for those who carry balances, this has a nice intro APR offer, is a business card, and more importantly for all of us,, is an Amex card, not Chase (5/24)

Earn 20,000 extra Membership Rewards ® points

after you spend at least $3,000 in your first 3 months of Card Membership.†


OFFER TERMS

Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product.

Earn 20,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $3,000 in qualifying purchases on the Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership

Earn 20,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $3,000 in qualifying purchases* on the Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership. To be eligible to earn additional points, you must charge $3,000 of qualifying purchases* during the first 3 months of membership on an eligible Blue BusinessSM Plus Card from American Express OPEN. Qualifying purchases can be made by the Basic Card Member and any Additional Card Members on a single Card Account. Limit one offer per Card Account. Offer may not be combined with any other special offer. You can earn 20,000 Membership Rewards points after you spend $3,000 or more in qualifying purchases on your Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership starting from the date your account is approved. In rare instances, your period to spend $3,000 may be shorter than 3 months if there is a delay in receiving your Card. Also, purchases may fall outside of the 3 month period in some cases, such as a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction. (For example, if you buy goods online, the purchase date may be the date the goods are shipped). The 20,000 additional points will be credited to your Membership Rewards account 6-8 weeks after you have met the purchase requirement. For questions regarding your Card account, please call the number on the back of your Card.
American Express reserves the right to modify or revoke offer at any time.

I never applied for a business card before, but the description makes it sound like a great card to have. Can someone link me to tips for applying?

The only details I see here are to put in Sole Proprietorship.
Does it matter what I put in for Business name?
Does it matter how much my business Revenue is in a year? Is that Gross or Net?

How does Applying for this card affect your Credit Score, and how does your Credit Score affect your applying for this card? (Or any business credit card.)

Is there a chance of getting reconsidered (by calling Recon) if the reason is due to high utilization?

The ratio of revolving account balances to their credit limits is too high.
The amount owed on your revolving accounts is too high.
The time since your most recent account opening is too short.
The length of time your accounts have been established.

This card will not help your credit, as it is a business card.  So if you'd like to apply for another Amex today, to avoid a hard pull, maybe apply for a personal card that has an increased offer, like the Delta Gold (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/DeltaGold2017/), Delta Platinum (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/DeltaPlatinum2017/), or Hilton Surpass (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/SurpassBanner/).

nothing wrong with having both

+2

Charge some here, charge some there?

I just don't see the point of having "identical" cards (other then the signup bonus). So at the end of the day, this is 2% back and the citi is 2% back. This can transfer to miles, citi cannot. This does not have price protection, citi does.

I'm a rather organized person and having lots of cc's scares me quite honestly. I know most here will laugh at that but if I don't use them then why have them and if I do use them, I need to remember to pay them.

how is this a 2% back? if ur redeeming points for charges then 2 points isnt 2 cents and if ur using them for what theyre meant for, theyre a lot more than 2%

You can redeem them for GCs, so they're basically worth 1% if you go that route, although that's not a very smart route.

There are many many benefits to having a bunch of open credit cards, not the least of which is improving your credit vastly by keeping them current. Just enroll in autopay and don't really spend, it's helpful if every few months you make a purchase and don't pay it off till yourstatement prints. Also, for a controversial benefit that can make you a bunch of money.. piggybacking

"However, that’s not even an issue here, as the Membership Rewards points earned with the Blue Business Plus Credit Card can be transferred to all of Amex’s airline and hotel transfer partners. This is incredible for a no annual fee card."

http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2017/05/30/amex-blue-plus-membership-rewards/

He's basing this off the same as Dan which is the original press release but I have yet to find hard, credible evidence that a user without any other MR earning card is able to transfer the points from this card to airlines.

So far everyone I ask has preexisting MR earning cards so no one can say for sure

I'm asking about the BBP only having two Amex offers available.

I'm not sure what everyone is unclear about with the BBP transfer options. It says clearly in the mailer and application link that it could transfer to airlines.

When I added an AU right after getting approved, it did not ask for AU's SSN.
I was successful in adding the card to the AU's login to combine w/ their other cards. It took a couple tries and wasn't straight forward, but start by logging in w/ their login, then go to add card. all else fails, call AMEX customer service.

I tried logging in first, didn't help. I could call AMEX, but I try to call as little attention to my account as possible since I have multiple AUs in my own name and I don't want them to question that.

are you doing that to get multiple amex offers? can you double/trip dip in the same offer using the AU accounts?

Assuming AMEX Offers actually show up on this card (which they haven't as of yet) each card is eligible, so if I have 4 cards (even if 3 are AUs in my own name) I'm eligible for each AMEX Offer 4 times (assuming its targeted on each card).

I can confirm that this card allows you to transfer to travel partners.

I applied and was auto approved Thursday night, and I checked Friday before Shabbat and I could transfer to partners.

Earlier on Friday I wasnt able to transfer to partners. It did take some time.

Not really getting you the regular offers.

So far for this card you can only get the offers available to be synced via twitter or the X2 (1 additional)  points offer with specific merchants like staples, macy's, boxed and a few more.

the rule for Amex credit line increase for new accounts used to be officially 60 days after card approval.

and the rule for relocating credit limit was 13 months for the card from and 60 days for the card to.

but online it was until recently bypassing the 60 day requirement on both.

in the last few days it seems to me that this changed and it does require 60 day for both,

is there anyone that could confirm?

I am in the same boat and currently in my second opened case to fight this. Pretty frustrating. Let me know if you have any success.
I had the same issue like you, but I gave up, was not getting anywhere and was taking much of time.

Without a Platinum card, it seems to me that the Sapphire Reserve and Freedom Unlimited is a better value for points. (1.5 X 1.5 = 2.25). Sure they have different partners and it's good to have a a diversified stash of points, but let's not overstate the value of this solid card.

Assuming you redeem @ 1.5 for travel, but I assume most redeem by transferring to partners. And the beauty this is that it transfers with no AF and you are earning 2ppd over the CFU 1.5

Generally, transferring to partners is what really sets points earning cards apart from cashback earning cards. I think it's safe to say most of us can arrange a value of at least 1.5 cpp through transferring. So, especially with the depth of airline partners MR has, and common Amex offers that let you stretch for additional MR, I think this is a no-brainer for 50K in purchases annually, before FU. Of course, that's before we even talk about the balance-carrying perk this has for your float.. but that's a whole other personal finance shmooze

Hard to answer the part about business revenue, have seen some approved with no income, business just started, and others declined in spite of high business revenue, all this is Amex internal info.

No. If there is a reason that is their fault, maybe, but Stam, they won't.

So if there is only $4500 spend there will be 0 bonus MR ? When does it start when card arrives or when approved ?

I don't know the numbers specific to your SUB, but it's all or nothing. You met the spend requirement or you didn't. Pretty clear cut. Any spend will obviously earn the standard rates as per usual, regardless of bonus. Clock usually starts from approval time, but that varies by bank.

Your credit is what backs your company. Amex will pull YOUR credit assuming you don't have any other cards with them. If you are currently a Amex cardholder, they most likely will not do a hard pull.

This is only true as far as reporting your monthly statement to your credit, not inquiries, and not in every case. Typically applying for a business card will result in a hard pull on your credit, but will not report monthly. In cases like capital one, it will report.

Definitely worth escalating, as they tend to hand out these bonuses even years later sometimes when they review their books. They only way that will happen is if you make them aware of the situation. It’s also always possible for a supervisor to manually credit. Last point to keep in mind is that unlike self referral, referring your spouse is perfectly legit, so no reason not to fight for it...
