If you want to earn 10,000 points after your first purchase + 10x points at restaurants in the United States via a card with no annual fee, then note that today is your last chance to get in on this temporary offer from the Blue for Business Card from Amex.



The Blue for Business® Credit Card from American Express has a multi-faceted limited time sign-up bonus through today (2/1/2017) made up of the following components:

  • 10X points at U.S. restaurants for the first six months, on up to $2,000 in purchases for a total of 20,000 points
  • 2X points on all qualifying purchases on the first $50,000 for the first year, for a total of 100,000 points
  • 10,000 Membership Rewards points after making your first purchase in the first 3 months
  • 30% annual points bonus based on the past year’s purchases on your Blue for Business Card.
  • Terms & Conditions Apply

It is not that common anymore to see bonus points awarded at the first purchase, so that alone is pretty unique these days. Getting 10x points at restaurants, up to the $2,000 limit, is also the highest payout on restaurants I have ever seen. Getting 2x on other eligible purchases in the first year (up to $50k max) is also really solid. Since all of this comes with no annual fee and shouldn’t impact your Chase 5/24 status as it is a small business card, I thought it was worth one more mention before the bonus ends.

The Membership Reward points earned by this card are not transferrable to hotel and airline partners unless you also have a premium Membership Rewards card, but you can get one of those with no annual fee as well via The Amex EveryDaySM Credit Card, if you don’t already have an eligible card.

If you want in on the current The Blue for Business® Credit Card from American Express, don’t delay since 2/1/17 is the advertised end date!

Did you decide to pull the trigger on this somewhat unique offer?

  1. I signed up. I actually was looking for an increased offer on the Personal AMEX GOLD card so I could MS at 2x pts at Grocery Stores for the next 2 months. This basically accomplishes that in that I get $50k in spend at 2x on anything. And I don’t have to pay a fee or take a 5/24 hit to boot.
