American Express is doubling the bonus for the Amex Blue for Business Card to 20,000 points (up from 10,000). Amex seems to be continuing their roll out of strong offers this year and I know a lot of people are loving it! While this offer requires a sizable spend ($5,000 spend in 6 months) to get the full 20,000 pt bonus, it offers some valuable perks and no annual fee!
Amex Blue for Business Credit Card 20K Offer Highlights:
- Get 10,000 Membership Reward points after making your first purchase on the Card within your first three months.
- PLUS, for a limited time, get AN ADDITIONAL 10,000 membership rewards points after you spend $5,000 in purchases on the Card in the first 6 months. This is a total of 20,000 bonus pts
- Annual points bonus are given in the form of Membership Rewards points and is equal to 30% of your past year’s purchases on your Blue for Business Card.
- 0% APR for initial 9 months

Why You Should Apply and Keep Open:
While this offer requires a big spend ($5,000 spend in 6 months) to get the full 20,000 pt bonus, you should still go for it because of all the perks:
These are premium Membership Reward points that allow you to transfer to airlines and hotels, many of which at 1:1 ratio.Thanks for the correction Bobbie – see comment below.
- If you are strapped for cash, the Amex Blue for Business comes with 0% APR for 9 months. I will caution you, however, that I recommend anyone collecting miles and points pay off their credit cards in full every month!
- Best of all, there is no annual fee, so I plan to keep this card open forever.
