Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here – The Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN, Personal Premier Rewards Card from American Express

American Express just launched a business version of their Premier Rewards card and it’s a pretty incredible deal if you can spend $10,000 within the first 5 months. And just like the Personal Premier Rewards card, the $175 annual fee is waived for the first year. This is the replacement for the regular Business Gold card.

There is a 3/2/1 point bonus structure as well for this card. You earn 3x points on airfare, 2x points on purchases in the U.S. for advertising in select media, gasoline at U.S. stand-alone gas stations, and shipping and 1x points on other purchases.  Restrictions: Points are earned only on eligible purchases. Bonus points limitations apply. The $175 annual fee is waived the first year. Note: The card does have 2.7% in foreign transaction fees so I do not recommend using it for travel outside the US or spend with foreign vendors.

This is one of my links so I can vouch that the bonus and link are active (and you won’t have to argue to get the points like some other bonus offers).

The only downside is that this offer is not open to existing Business Gold customers.

Bank of America® Premium Rewards® Visa® credit card

This card from Bank of America gets really interesting if you have a BofA checking, savings or investment account. Depending on the value of your combined accounts you can potentially get as much as 3.5x points on travel/dining and 2.625x points on other purchases making it the richest consumer banking bonus out there.
