Statement credit opportunities, a hefty welcome bonus, and one year of the current annual fee are just a few reasons why now is the time to consider getting The Business Platinum Card® from American Express.
Lock in a Year of the Current, Lower Annual Fee
So if you’re approved now, that gives you an entire membership year of the lower annual fee — and you can take advantage of the card’s statement credit opportunities!
120,000 Bonus Points Welcome Offer
New Business Platinum Card® from American Express applicants earn 120,000 bonus Membership Rewards points after spending $15,000 on eligible purchases within three (3) months of being approved for card membership.
Yes, 15 large is a hefty sum. Not all businesses can afford that. But consider that quarterly tax payments are due soon. That’s an easy way to knock out a bunch of spending. It’s also the time of year when some businesses purchase gifts for clients, colleagues, and employees.
Consider all your business’ expenses — and how quickly they can add up.
Remember, too, that cardholders can earn 1.5X Membership Rewards points on purchases made in the following categories:
- Electronics goods, retailers, software, and cloud service providers
- Construction materials and hardware supplies
- Shipping providers
These categories’ bonus earnings are capped at $2 million per calendar year.
0% Introductory APR
The card offers 0% Intro APR for 12 months from the card membership approval date on purchases eligible for Pay Over Time.
After that, the APR increases to between 14.24% to 22.24%. (This is based on creditworthiness and other factors as determined at the time of card membership approval. See rates and fees; terms apply.)
Statement Credit Opportunities
The Business Platinum Card® from American Express offers a few statement credit opportunities for cardholders. And they’re incredibly easy to earn.
$200 Airline Incidental Credit
Cardholders earn up to $200 in statement credits per calendar year in eligible purchases made with a participating airline. (Enrollment required.) Think checked baggage fees, onboard food and beverage purchases, and other things.
The $200 airline incidental credit could save you a pretty penny if you’re checking baggage, making award reservations (charge the taxes to your card), and more.
This credit expires at the end of the year. So use it before then!
Save on your cell phone bill every month! Cardmembers can earn up to $10 each month for purchases made directly from any US wireless telephone provider. (Enrollment required.) So if you apply now, you’re eligible to earn $20 total in statement credit on your bill ($10 in November, $10 in December).
Dell Statement Credit
Need some electronic gear? Business Platinum Card® from American Express cardholders can earn up to $400 per year ($200 semi-annually) in statement credits for Dell Technologies purchases charged to their Amex Business Platinum card. So you have through December 31, 2021, to earn $200 in Dell statement credit!
That’s up to $420 in statement credits you can earn before January 1, 2022!
- Airline incidental credit: $200
- Dell credit: $200
